We finally broke that streak of below freezing temperatures on Friday and that warmth continued today. We officially reached a high temperature of 44° around the 4’oclock hour. This warmth will continue into Sunday as well as the warm front, associated with a low pressure system to our north, continues to lift through South Dakota and the Plains.
Enjoy this warm up because on Monday, winds are from the northwest which will usher in cooler air and make wind chill values, especially in the morning, cold… reaching the single digits yet again. The cold front is expected to move through sometime in the late morning/early afternoon and cooler air will begin to replace the warm air. We’ll see a chance for a rain/snow mix during the day on Sunday underneath the clouds but that’ll turn over to snow for Monday as wrap around moisture interacts with the cooler air. Again, the snow will be light and will just dust the ground.
Enjoy the warmth because on Monday, temperatures drop into the low/mid 20s with a slight chance for snow, we’ll briefly warm up on Tuesday and Wednesday before cooling off again for Thanksgiving. A high pressure system, our fair weather friend, will open up skies as well as bring down cooler air for Thanksgiving but temperatures will warm slight if you’re planning on Black Friday shopping and will stick around for next weekend as well.
