It is another warm day across KELOLAND. Temperatures are in the 60s in Sioux Falls and SE KELOLAND, and the 50s to low 60s in central and western SD. Even in north central and NE South Dakota – where there is still a considerable amount of snow cover, temperatures have been in the 40s to mid 50s. A southwest breeze has turned to the northwest.
It will be a partly cloudy night. We could see some fog or snow flurries (no accumulation) in the north. Lows will be in the 30s – a little cooler in snow covered areas.
Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy and cooler, as a light NE breeze brings in cooler air from the north. With a weak front coming down, there could be some very light showers in northern and central South Dakota. Sioux Falls and SE KELOLAND will be just ahead of the front, so highs will be in the low 50s. Most of the rest of KELOLAND will top out in the 40s.
Another band of clouds will come through on Friday, and light rain showers will be possible in Sioux Falls and SE KELOLAND. Some light snow may mix in with the rain West River – and Rapid City and SW South Dakota may even get a few inches of accumulation. Highs will only be in the low 40s across KELOLAND, cooler in Rapid City.
Saturday will be clear to partly cloudy and cooler, with highs remaining below normal in the mid 30s to low 40s. Sunday will be sunny and warmer, in the mid to upper 40s East River, and the low 50s in the west.
April begins on Monday with partly to mostly sunny skies, and near normal temperatures in the upper 40s East River to the mid 50s West River. Tuesday will be warmer, in the 50s, with a chance of rain showers in the west. That potential for rain – or a rain snow mix – will spread across KELOLAND on Wednesday. It still looks like we will warm well into the 50s for the first weekend of April.
