A Sunny, Warmer Valentine’s Day

After ten straight days of below average high temperatures, we are going to turn up the heat for Valentine’s Day! Today will be mostly sunny with temps climbing into the low 40s this afternoon. I wish I could keep the mild temps around a bit longer, but this heat wave is only going to last a day. A cold front will blast through tomorrow and that means colder temperatures and light snow.  

Clouds will increase late tonight with areas of fog and frost possible after midnight. Tomorrow will be cloudy with most places reaching the day’s high by noon. By late tomorrow afternoon, most of the north will drop into the low teens or single digits. Sioux Falls will reach the upper 20s to low 30s by noon tomorrow with temps falling into the teens by 6 pm. Light snow is also possible tomorrow. Most places will only get a dusting, but a few places could get up to an inch.

Cold temperatures will stick around on Friday and then we will warm slightly for the weekend. Saturday and Sunday will be partly to mostly cloudy with high temps in the low to mid 30s. Get ready for more cold and light snow next week. By Monday and Tuesday highs will only reach the upper teens to low 20s.
