The Farmers' Almanac has been a trusted source of information for almost as long as the U.S. has been around. It was founded in 1918 and has been a staple for Rural Americans for over two hundred years. Not only does it feature tips on farming, cooking, conservation, and gardening, but it's perhaps best known for its long-term weather predictions.

The Almanac has its predictions for nearly every part of the U.S. ready and here's what it says about Sioux Falls, regarding February:
