Mostly sunny skies are forecast today in KELOLAND with temperatures near records in many areas. A high of 67 is forecast in Sioux Falls, one degree shy of the record. We’ll see lower 70s along the Nebraska border this afternoon with a breeze from the southwest.
The weather will start changing tonight as a cold front drops south. High winds will be likely with high wind watches and wind advisories posted for many areas on Thanksgiving. Winds will gust over 40mph from the northwest in many areas, with highs staying in the 40s. Sioux Falls will still manage lower 50s, but it will feel colder with the wind. Late in the day, light snow showers may brush northeast SD, but the majority of the snow will stay in North Dakota. If you are heading toward Grand Forks, a winter storm watch has been posted for that area for snow and blowing snow tomorrow.
Highs will be much colder in KELOLAND on Friday as colder northwest winds continue. Highs will be in the 30s and lower 40s with windchills around 9 in the early morning in Sioux Falls.
The weekend looks cool, but a little warmer than Friday. We are mainly watching Sunday night and Monday as an arctic cold front arrives from the north. Some light snow will be possible, but colder highs in the 20s will be the main story early next week.
