Newman Fan,
The weather the end of February is anyones guess.
All winter long, it could be snowing, and 10 degrees one day, and shirt sleeves the next.
Today Rapid City is 40 degrees, no snow on the ground any more. Last week the wind
chill temps were hovering at -30 during the day.
Bob

Yup, what he said.

I really don't want you to feel like you're going away without an answer though. Here are two links that will tell you the average temps for each month. But honestly, it's really hard to tell. It could be 50 above or it could be 20 below. AND welcome to our state and I do wish you good luck.


Average Weather for Mitchell, SD - Temperature and Precipitation

Mitchell, South Dakota (SD) Detailed Profile - relocation, real estate, travel, jobs, hospitals, schools, crime, news, sex offenders

Sioux Falls is generally a few degrees cooler then Mitchell and it has happened that we've had a raging ice storm and Sioux Falls has just had a couple inches of snow. But the two cities are only about 70 miles apart so these links should help a bit.

I look forward to Visiting the State of South Dakota I here it is a beutiful state. It also will be our first time there. So I can not wait to get there. Thank you all again.

Glad you're not discouraged by our weather and you're very welcome here. Hopefully you'll end up moving here and can take a trip out to the Hills. Now that's a beautiful area.

Be sure to visit Falls Park and walk the Phillips to the Falls path. It's nice.

Also, check out the Corn Palace while you're in Mitchell.

Be sure to look at the weather the day before you go. That is the only time the weather is for sure. Pack both sweaters AND tanktops!

The way it's looking right now, forget the tank tops. It seems as though Rapid always has nicer weather than Sioux Falls, though. I really hope you enjoy Sioux Falls. Though it sounds like you're going to be going to Rapid, Sioux Falls is a great place to check out--like previously suggested, Falls Park. It's gorgeous right now---all frozen, but pretty. One place that's completely overlooked, but neat if you like water, is the Missouri River area. Chamberlain and Pickstown are great places if you enjoy boating/water. PM me for more information.
In the hills area, I really like Deadwood. Sure it's a gambling town, but it has a lot of history and it's pretty. Have a great time and thanks for coming to South Dakota!
