Strong winds from yesterday have diminished with a cool start to this Wednesday. Temperatures will quickly rebound today with highs into the upper 60s to lower 70s across the west, with 50s in the east. Winds will be from the south for most areas, with the strongest breeze in central KELOLAND.
Mild weather will continue tomorrow in the south, but a cooler north wind will impact temperatures in northern and western KELOLAND. In fact, by Thursday night, snow will begin in North Dakota and the weather pattern begins to turn more unsettled heading into the weekend.
Friday will be marked by more clouds developing and a sharpening contrast in temperature across KELOLAND. Highs will be in the 50s in the south, with 40s in the north. Organized rain or snow should stay mainly to the west and north. That will change on Saturday.
Areas of accumulating snow will develop in western SD, while scattered showers and even isolated t-storms develop in the east. A strong cold front will march east during the day, so the warmest weather will be ahead of the front on Saturday in Sioux Falls in the 60s, with 30s in the west.
While rain and snow chances are looking better, the heaviest snow will likely fall in Montana and North Dakota. Also, the best chances of organized rain along the cold front will be just east of KELOLAND, where more substantial amounts over 1” will be possible in parts of Iowa, Minnesota, and Missouri.
Much colder weather is likely on Sunday with highs in the 20s and lower 30s.
