A Warmer Week Ahead

Get ready for a sunny, mild start to the week. Today will be mostly sunny with high temps ranging from the low 40s in Sioux Falls to the mid to upper 30s across much of South Dakota.

Tonight will be partly cloudy with areas of fog developing toward morning. With temperatures dropping into the teens overnight, the fog will frost the roads.

The rest of the week will be mostly dry and quite a bit warmer than we’ve been for the last week or so. High temps will climb into the low to mid 30s each day.

Extreme southeastern South Dakota and parts of Iowa and Minnesota will get clipped by a system late Wednesday into Thursday. We could get a quick shot of light snow in Sioux Falls on Wednesday night. Parts of southern Minnesota and northwestern Iowa could get some minor accumulation.

Saturday and Sunday are looking good. Both days should be partly cloudy with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s. There is a potential system that could impact the region with rain and then snow late Sunday and Monday. Depending on how that pans out, we might have to tweak Sunday’s forecast a bit. It’s only Monday and a lot could change between now and then. I’ll have updates throughout the week.
