Updated by KSFY Meteorologist Shawn Cable on Friday, March 07 at 4:12 AM
Patchy, light freezing rain is falling across parts of the region this morning. Roads will be slippery at times. A Freezing Rain Advisory is in effect for parts of northeast South Dakota early this morning.
Today will be cloudy and breezy with falling temperatures. Most places have already reached their high temperature for the day. Temps will slowly fall throughout the day, into the upper teens to low 20s by 5 PM. Wind will be from the north, gusting to 25 or 30 mph, decreasing from west to east throughout the day.
Tomorrow will be partly cloudy and cool but not breezy. Sunday is the day we've all been waiting for. Highs will reach the low 50s in Sioux Falls and across the tri-state area, parts of central and western South Dakota could warm into the low to mid 60s. This time, the warm weather will stick around. Highs will drop into the upper 30s to mid 40s on Tuesday and Wednesday, but they'll bounce right back to into the 50s by next Thursday.
Don't forget, Daylight Saving Time begins this weekend. "Spring ahead" before you go to bed on Saturday night. While you're at it, check and change your smoke detector and weather radio batteries.
