SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- We had another nice day across the area with less wind and more cloud cover, which did limit temperatures a bit. It’ll be an unseasonably warm start to the week, with temperatures running 10-25 degrees above average.

TONIGHT: Skies will remain cloudy to mostly cloudy during the evening, but we’ll begin to see some clearing overnight as a warm front moves east. A few light rain showers could be possible through midnight across northeast South Dakota. Winds will shift from the S to the W at 5-15 mph. Lows drop back into the 30s to near 40, but should remain steady or rise a few degrees overnight.

MONDAY: We’ll have a mostly sunny to partly cloudy sky as the warm front moves east. A cold front will move through during the day, but it won’t bring much of anything other than cloud cover Monday night. Winds will be breezy out of the W and NW at 10-20 mph. Highs will top out in the 50s and 60s, and it looks plausible that temperatures will be flirting with record levels.

REST OF THE WEEK: Conditions look to remain dry through the rest of the week. We’ll have a partly to mostly cloudy sky each day. There could be a slight chance of a few isolated rain showers Tuesday morning along and south of I-90, but it doesn’t look to appear to be anything significant. Highs will be in the 40s and 50s Tuesday, 50s and 60s Wednesday and Thursday and 40s Friday. Lows will be in the 30s.

NEXT WEEKEND: We’ll have more seasonable temperatures for the first weekend of December. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with a very slight chance of light snow or wintry mix showers. Models have been flip-flopping back and forth on this idea, so we’ll keep the chances low, but not zero. Highs will be in the 30s and 40s with lows in the 20s to low 30s.

LONGER TERM OUTLOOKS: The latest 8-14 day outlooks, which runs from December 6-12, continues to indicate a chance of above average temperatures with near to slightly below average precipitation.
