Thick, high level clouds will increase from the south while low level clouds move in from the north. So either way you look the forecast, KELOLAND is looking at cloudy to mostly cloudy skies tonight. Some scattered flurries or freezing drizzle might get squeezed out of those clouds so don’t be surprised if you see some very light precip tonight. Overnight lows are in the teens to 20s.
Saturday will be cooler as cold air is pulled into KELOLAND because of the passing winter storm to the south. Afternoon temps will be in the teens to 20s in central and east KELOLAND with 30s in the west.
Sunday returns to mild temps and sunshine as the winter storm exits the southern Midwest. Sunday afternoon temperatures in KELOLAND will recover to the 20s and 30s in the east, with 30s and 40s in central and west KELOLAND.
Monday will be even warmer as highs reach the upper 20s to mid-40s for those in the east with 40s to near 50 in the central and west regions.
Colder air begins to sink back into the Midwest the rest of the week so we’ll be cooler with projected highs in the 20s to 30s for most of KELOLAND, which is still within a few degrees of normal. The northeast is the exception with projected highs in the teens which is well below normal for mid-January.
The rain and snow potential going into next week is still pretty low. The northeast and central areas of SD could see some very light snow or flurries on Tuesday and Wednesday. Next Friday brings the next opportunity for some accumulating snowfall to the Midwest and to KELOLAND.
