National Weather Service Sioux Falls SD
400 AM CDT Fri Apr 20 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Temperatures will slowly warm today (Friday) through Monday.
Light south and southeast winds are expected during this
timeframe. Isolated sprinkles and light showers are possible
Saturday morning. A better chance for rain will come with a cold
frontal passage on Tuesday. Rain amounts are still low confidence,
but 0.25 to 0.50 inches look to be the best bet at this point.
Breezy northwest winds will accompany the cold front. Dry
conditions are expected mid through late next week.
