SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- As temperatures have been around 10 to 20 degrees above normal the last few days, we’re about to come crashing right back to normal and even slightly below that for the next few days.

Clouds will build in tonight as our next storm system arrives. We’re tracking some rainfall and because of the timing of this storm system moving in even a few snowflakes will be possible as well to mix in mainly in central and western South Dakota. Some snow may briefly accumulate mainly on grassy surfaces such as around Pierre, but we’re not anticipating any major accumulations on roadways or for travel issues.

Temperatures will fall to the 40′s for highs around Aberdeen and Pierre and barely get to the mid 50′s east. A few thunderstorms will be possible around the Sioux Falls vicinity overnight tonight into Wednesday. The main threat would be for some hail. This is not anticipated to be a major severe weather event. Clouds will then slowly clear for Thursday.

We’ll have cooler air as sunshine gradually returns Thursday with highs in the upper 40′s to the lower 50′s and then we’ll have more sunshine for Friday with highs warming up into the mid to upper 50′s which is normal for this time of the year. The weekend will bring more clouds on Saturday and a chance of rain on Sunday.
