It's going to turn notably colder for the rest of this week. There is also a high probability of much of the area receiving more than a tenth of an inch of precipitation Tuesday night and Wednesday. In fact, it could get cold enough for the rain to mix with or change over to snow for a few hours by early Wednesday morning across portions of north central South Dakota. Strong north or northeast winds will develop Tuesday night and persist into Wednesday. Places that experience the combination of falling snow and these strong winds could find travel conditions becoming slick in spots early Wednesday morning.
