SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- It’s the first day of Meteorological Winter and it certainly doesn’t look or feel like it! Mild conditions will stick around for tonight and into Thursday. Some light rain will be possible in northeastern South Dakota tonight.

Cooler air will begin to work its way in throughout the rest of the week, but we’ll remain above normal which should only be in the mid to upper 30′s this time of the year. We’ll get to the 40′s in northeastern South Dakota and then the 60′s along and south of I-90 with sunshine. We’ll continue to cool down on Friday down to the mid to upper 40′s for all of us for highs.

This weekend will continue the cooler air, but again, temperatures will remain above normal. We’ll be in the 40′s. There will be a chance for some light snow in northern South Dakota on Sunday, but there doesn’t appear to be much of anything for accumulations as that will favor staying in North Dakota.

Highs next week will continue to drop to the 30′s for highs which even then will still be a few degrees above normal as dry weather is generally favored.
