SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- We’ll be feeling more like late November over the next few days, but warmer weather will return later in the week.

We’ll have a mostly clear to partly cloudy sky for our Sunday night with a north to northwest wind at 5-10 mph. Lows fall back into the upper teens to upper 20s.

Aside from some clouds in central South Dakota, expect a mainly clear sky Monday with a northerly wind at 5-15 mph and highs ranging from the upper 30s east to the 50s in western South Dakota. Lows range from the low to mid teens east to the 20s west.

Tuesday will be sunny and cold once again with a light northerly wind turning east to southeast in central and western South Dakota. Highs range from around 40 east to 55-60 west with lows in the 20s.

Temperatures return to the 50s and 60s Wednesday with 60s to low 70s Thursday and Friday with a mostly clear to partly cloudy sky.

Next weekend will be mild to warm with highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s. While Saturday will be dry with a partly cloudy sky, the latest model runs continue to show a potential system moving through October 23-24 that could bring some precipitation to the area. This is still a week out and we’ll be watching it closely as we desperately need some precipitation.
