SIOUX FALLS, SD (Dakota News Now) – A strong cold front is moving through the region today and it is causing big changes in the region. As the front advances, we will see the wind shift to the northwest. This will occur first in central South Dakota where we may experience wind gusts of around 30 to 35 mph. By afternoon, temperatures around Pierre and west will enter the 40s, but further east we’ll warm into the 60s. The rain will start late Thursday and we’ll see some snow flakes mix in as temperatures drop. Less than an inch of snow is expected from Brookings to Mitchell to Lake Andes and west.
A light mix of rain and snow will continue Friday morning, before all clouds and precipitation leave the area by midday. We’ll only get temperatures in the 40’s higher up. If you’re going to football games on Friday night, it’s going to be pretty cold!
Heading into the weekend, we’ll be in the 50s with little chance of precipitation. Better chances will return next week Tuesday – Thursday, which will once again include a chance for some snow flakes to mix in. Temperatures will drop to 30 degrees by then.
