Welcome Back, Sunshine!

The sun will finally claw its way out from behind the clouds today, but it’s not going to warm us up much. Temperatures will head back into the upper 20s to low 30s this afternoon, which is similar to where they were yesterday and just slightly below average for this time of year.

The sun is here to stay, but the “warm” temperatures are not. Another blast of cold, Arctic air will arrive tonight and hang around through most of the weekend. (And yes, I put warm in quotes. Let’s face it, 29 degrees isn’t warm, but it’s as good as it’s gonna get this week.)

As the cold arrives, scattered clouds and a few flurries will be possible in the North this afternoon and in Sioux Falls and across the South tonight. The wind will also increase to about 15 to 25 mph later today and tonight as the front rolls through.

Tomorrow will be mostly sunny and cold. High temps will range from the mid teens in Sioux Falls to the low 20s across Central South Dakota. On Friday morning, temperatures will drop to around zero and then slowly warm back into the 20s through the weekend and early next week. There will be plenty of sunshine through the weekend and most of next week, just not a lot of heat. Temperatures should get back to about average by next Tuesday or Wednesday.
