It’s a very cold morning in KELOLAND with subzero temperatures in many areas East River. The wind chill is very cold too with the “feels like” temperature in the -20s. A wind chill advisory remains in effect for this morning in much of the east, so stay warm and minimize your exposure to the cold. South winds will continue much of the day at 15-30 mph in eastern KELOLAND. Temperatures will be much warmer in western KELOLAND with highs in the lower 40s in Rapid City.
That warmer air will be spreading east tonight and tomorrow with highs back into the 20s in the southeast. The warmer air will be short-lived in the east as another cold front slides through KELOLAND. Sioux Falls will see steady or falling temps in the teens during the afternoon Friday, with readings in Aberdeen falling to near 0 by evening.
Saturday morning will start below zero in the east, but West River areas will be much warmer. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the 40s in Rapid City. Sioux Falls will be warmer by Sunday, but that change in the weather will be accompanied by a chance of light rain or light freezing rain in the southeast.
Another system will affect KELOLAND by Tuesday with a chance of snow. The best chances may be northwest of Sioux Falls. Temperatures will remain a little warmer, however, so enjoy a break from the arctic cold early next week.
