We’re in a stretch of dry weather that we haven’t seen in quite sometime.
Some in KELOLAND had flurries or drizzle Tuesday morning, but most locations stayed dry. It continues a dry stretch of weather we haven’t seen since the beginning of the year.
Snow and ice will continue to melt on Tuesday. The gradual snow melt is ideal to help tame flooding this spring. Dry weather is also a driving factor, but we’ve had a hard time avoiding dry weather this year.
Aside from the first two weeks of the year that stayed dry in much of KELOLAND, our next longest stretch of dry weather in Sioux Falls is occurring right now. Otherwise, it was four days early in March. We’re at four days of dry weather in Aberdeen, our third longest stretch. Five days of dry weather in Pierre and Rapid City. Both of those cities getting close to their second longest stretch this year.
We are expecting this dry stretch to come to an end this weekend with a chance for rain. But rain amounts will generally stay less than a quarter inch.
