A tale of two halves of the state out there today. Many of us in eastern South Dakota saw plenty of sunshine and warmth, while in western South Dakota it has been much gloomier with some steadier rainfall. Wednesday will bring us all some clouds and maybe even some rain, especially in southern South Dakota, but don’t worry it won’t ruin the rest of the week.

Rain will move east overnight, but most of the moisture will stay into Nebraska, but we could see some sprinkles to the south of I-90. Because of the clouds and rain, our overnight temperatures are expected to stay mild with the upper 30s and low to mid 40s. Wind shouldn’t be too strong either from the east at 5 to 10 mph.

Our best chance for rain will be to the south of I-90 and into northern Iowa. While everyone will deal with clouds to start the day, we are expecting some clearing by the afternoon in northern and central South Dakota. The heaviest of the rain is likely to occur into central Iowa, but places into northwest Iowa could have a chance at seeing upwards of a half inch, maybe even up to an inch. However, once you get north of I-90 those chances dwindle. Because of the clouds we will stay cooler than places with sunshine. Upper 40s and low 50s where there are clouds, while in places that could see some sunshine it will be warmer with the upper 50s and low 60s!

Clouds stick around for many of us on Thursday, but Friday looks to be a nice one for most of us. Temperatures will be into the mid-50s and skies will stay mostly clear. However, for those that live in central and northern South Dakota we are expecting clouds to increase and bring a chance at some more showers late and overnight into Saturday morning. The first weekend of April looks to be pretty nice as skies will stay partly cloudy, but as we move into the later day on Saturday the possibility for rain will move in for the Sioux Falls area, but it shouldn’t last too long, clearing out fast enough for a gorgeous day on Sunday!
