SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Warmer temperatures are returning to the Dakotas.

The National Weather Service says the frigid start to the week in South Dakota will give way to temperatures as high as the 30s for much of the week, with readings near or above freezing on Tuesday. Mid-afternoon temperatures Sunday hit the teens in a few cities, after lows as cold as minus-37 in Aberdeen and Watertown. Afternoon wind chills in the teens below were common across the state.

Temperatures should be at or above their seasonal averages by Monday afternoon in North Dakota, where wind chills plunged to the 40-below range and even below minus-50 over the weekend. After lows mostly in the minus-20s across the state early Sunday, afternoon temperatures crept into the double digits in western North Dakota.
