After an A+ weekend today was sort of a letdown. We had more of the warmth, in some spots, and even a little bit of sunshine, however things were much gloomier and we even saw some shows and storms out there across the area. Today was just the start of the gloominess and sadly it looks like it might have been the best day we will see this week. Temperatures will definitely fall overnight tonight as that north wind continues to pull down some colder air. Low temperatures are expected to range from the upper 20s towards the North Dakota border, but to the south we will be a little warmer with the upper 30s and low 40s.

Overnight there will be some passing clouds, as we will be mostly clear to start the night, but once we make it into the morning hours on Tuesday the clouds will really ramp up. Wind from the north will stay strong from the north at 15 to 25 mph, keeping things chilly through the rest of the day. Rain will start out west overnight, but most of us wont deal with it until later in the morning out east. Showers and storms will really pick up into the afternoon and evening on Tuesday, bring some heavy rain along and east of the I-29 corridor. Some spots are looking to see anywhere from a half inch up to 1.50” of rain by early Wednesday morning. Wind will stay from the north throughout the day Tuesday, at times gusting to 35 maybe even 40 mph. Temps will be much warmer to the south with the upper 30s and low to mid 40s, but up north we will see the mid-30s.

This is where I have to give you bad news… As temps drop overnight into the day on Wednesday, that rain will transition over to snow. The heaviest snow will likely fall on Tuesday for the Black Hills, but out east some spots could see a half inch or so in eastern South Dakota. At this point the snow won’t stay around too long with ground temps being so much warmer. However, we could still see some spots that see some accumulation for a brief time. Things will dry out for Thursday, but overall we are looking at a very chilly week, and won’t see any nice warmth until early next week!
