What month is it? Today definitely didn’t feel like January for those who live along or south of Highway 14 as we hit the low to mid 40s, the low 50s, and even in some spots hit the 60s! To put that into perspective, we had a high temperature of 45° in Sioux Falls, which we normally don’t average until March 20th, which ironically is actually the first official day of Spring this year.
Tonight will still be a cold one for places in northern South Dakota with temperatures into the low to mid-teens, mainly due to the snow on the ground. Skies will stay mostly clear, but clouds will move in from the southeast by the early morning on Thursday. Winds should remain from the south at 5 to 10 mph for most of us as well. Where we see some clouds, mainly to the southeast, we will stay warmer with temperatures staying into the upper 20s and low 30s. If the wind is light enough, we will have a good chance at seeing some fog as we roll out of bed on Thursday.
Once that fog does clear by the morning, we will be greeted with more clouds, especially for those who are east of the James River. Temperatures will still be above average for most of us as we will climb into the low 40s again to the southeast, but that snowpack will again keep things cool for northern South Dakota. Clouds will bring us a chance at some drizzle throughout the day on Thursday with more drizzle and showers as we move into the day on Friday. That rain could mix with snow overnight into Saturday for those who are in northern South Dakota, but minimal accumulation is expected.
