Although this week should be fairly quiet, we do have a few weather stories going on. There are two big cold fronts coming in. The first is about halfway through KELOLAND and will cool us off tomorrow. The latter will move in on Wednesday and the cold will last through next weekend.
We'll also have strong winds the next few days as the fronts move through.
Though there is rain on the radar right now, most of this is struggling to hit the ground. The air still needs to be primed for rain and we're fairly far off. Still, drizzle is possible during the overnight hours.
Tomorrow will be more of a seasonal day. Temperatures will be in the 70s and skies will clear from west to east during the afternoon.
By Tuesday, the south winds bringing warmth return. This will again stir up a good breeze and peak fire danger again. The warmest areas will be just ahead of the cold front, with something called 'compressional warming.' That looks to be seen in western and northern South Dakota. We've trimmed the highs Tuesday in Sioux Falls just a touch since it does not look quite as windy. The much cooler Arctic air arrives Wednesday but the coolest temperatures will be felt late week.
The week's best overall chance of rain is late Wednesday into early Thursday. We could see several hard freezes late week.
