Record Warmth Likely Through Thursday

Bookmark and Share

Another day well above average in South Dakota as temperatures climbed Tuesday back to the 50’s and 60’s in some areas.  Three cities broke record highs as well, with the records in pink in the picture on your left.  But Tuesday won’t be the only day that will break a few records as temperatures will moderate a bit Wednesday but another big jump expected Thursday with some areas flirting with all time January high temperatures.

Here is a current look at a few different statistics for Thursday.  The first numbers in orange are our current forecast highs for Thursday (which can still fluctuate a little bit as we get closer to Thursday).  The numbers in white are our current daily record highs for January 5th.  Notice that ALL of our forecast highs are above those numbers, and in some cases just annihilate the older numbers, many of which are records from 20-40 years ago.  The final column of numbers in pink are the all time record highs for the month of January for those specific locations.  Comparing those numbers with the current forecast highs and some areas will be awfully close to the warmest temperatures of all time in the month of January.

On a side note, if Sioux Falls happens to hit 60 degrees, it will be the earliest in the year ever that the city has reached the 60-degree mark.  WOW!!

So break out the short sleeves, the golf clubs, and the grillers because it is going to be a very warm couple of days!!!
