Gray skies returned today after the first of two cold fronts this week. This wave was tame, as most of us are still comfortable. There are light showers showing up on radar but nothing is making it to the ground. We’ll keep a slight chance of light rain in the forecast for the far west tonight but don’t expect to see much.
A few light showers will also try to emerge from eastern Nebraska, impacting far SE KELOLAND. Though Sioux Falls has a very slight chance at overnight rain, it is not looking likely.
Tomorrow’s forecast will be a big improvement but that will only last one day. South winds will drive out clouds and bump up temperatures. Most will be in the 70s.
Big changes come starting on Wednesday. A more powerful cold front will start pushing through on Wednesday and we expect rain for many, right behind the actual front. The best chance for rain favors the evening hours of Wednesday into early Thursday. That trend has remained the same for the past few model runs but could change in the next 24 hours. Since the air will be cold, some wintry mix is possible in the Black Hills and far northern South Dakota.
Friday and Saturday will deliver some of the coldest temperatures of the month. High pressure will move in and that means clear nights and dropping temperatures. Saturday does look rather sunny, but should only be in the 40s.
