Forecast: A Mostly Dry Week with 70s by Wednesday!
With the flooding concern increasing and many rivers about to crest in the next several days, I do have some good news in the forecast: Other than a chance of rain or snow showers late Friday into Saturday, the 7 Day Forecast is mostly dry. Of course, with a lot of snow that still has to melt across Central and Northern South Dakota and much of North Dakota, flooding will continue to be an issue for the foreseeable future.
The other big weather store today is the warmer temperatures that are in the forecast for later this week. Today will be cloudy with cooler high Temps in the low 40s, however tomorrow temperatures will bounce right back into the 50s. By Wednesday high temps will soar into the upper 60s to low 70s along and the south of I-90. The last time Sioux Falls had a high temperature of 70 degrees or above was October 18th. Sadly the 70s will only last a day. Thursday will be cooler but still mild with highs in the mid 50s.
We are keeping an eye on a couple of systems that will clip parts of our region on Friday and Saturday. Scattered rain and/or snow showers will be possible both days, but as of right now our long-range models are suggesting the main part of these systems will primarily impact areas to our west and south. Stay tuned for updates. We'll know more about where these systems will track and get more specific with precipitation amounts as we get closer to the weekend.
