Christmas Weekend Sets Record Temperatures

The weather for the weekend of Christmas does not feel like the end of December as temperatures in South Dakota are well above normal and record-breaking.

At the Sioux Falls Airport, the mild temperatures on Saturday night set records. With a temperature of 53°F at around midnight, a record-high temperature was officially broken for today (Christmas Eve, December 24th). Then the temperature increased to 56°F increasing that record again at 6:08am CST. The old record for Sioux Falls on Christmas Eve was 50°F which was set in 2021.

On Saturday, Aberdeen broke a record that was set 130 years ago in 1893 with a record high temperature of 56°F.

Besides temperatures, a record-high dewpoint of 52°F was also set breaking the old record set in 1942 for Sioux Falls.
