SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- As temperatures continue to warm up and go back to being above normal, we’re going to deal with more and more cloud cover. That will continue tonight along with some patchy fog. Lows Tuesday morning will only be in the mid to upper 20′s to even some lower 30′s as well.

Most of us will be under the clouds again on Tuesday as highs warm up to and just above freezing. This will lead to another chance for some patchy fog Tuesday night and into Wednesday. Wednesday will be the warmest day of the week and we’ll be tracking some precipitation by Wednesday evening and into Thursday morning.

Temperatures will be in the upper 30′s to the 40′s which will allow the precipitation to begin as rain and turn into a wintry mix and quickly transition into some light snow Wednesday night and into Thursday morning. The wind will be getting much stronger too. Highs will only be in the 20′s on Thursday and Friday. Some icy roadways will be possible due to the extreme temperature drop on Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.

A chance for some light snow is possible on Friday, but then highs this weekend will be in the single digits both Saturday and Sunday. Morning lows will be below zero. This will drop feels like temperatures to the teens and 20′s below zero... This will be the coldest air we’ve had so far this winter. Make sure to have extra layers if you plan on traveling or being out!
