A cold front is moving south this morning with northwest winds in its wake. Highs will be cooler this afternoon with upper 30s in the north around Aberdeen, with mid 40s in the Sioux Falls area. Even though the weather will be cooler, it is forecast to be mostly sunny. Mostly clear skies will allow temps to fall into the mid to upper teens in the east, with 20s in the west.
Tomorrow, we will resume the warming trend with highs returning into the 40s and 50s. Winds will be stronger from the south in Pierre and Aberdeen, perhaps over 25mph at times. That stronger wind will continue to move east on Saturday, but temperatures will be warmer into the 50s in most areas.
A warmer trend is ahead in the 7-day forecast into next week with widespread 50s and 60s likely through Wednesday with dry weather. The warmest weather may arrive on Wednesday with a shot at 60 degrees in Sioux Falls.
A cold front will arrive on Thanksgiving or just after, so we’ll keep and eye on that over the next few days. In the meantime, enjoy the mild temperatures ahead.
