Storm Center Update - Friday AM

Light snow continues to move across portions of KELOLAND, but it is mostly light. 
Look for an inch or less in many areas East River, with slightly heavier totals across southwest Minnesota and northwest Iowa. Snow and winds have increased in the northern Black Hills early this morning where blowing snow is a problem. Northwest winds up to 35 miles per hour will continue in that region, but it will be warmer with highs in the upper 30s. Sioux Falls and Aberdeen will hit the mid teens today with a southeast wind at 10-15 miles per hour. Wind chills will be very cold early this morning with a -41 reading in Sisseton as of 6 a.m.

Another clipper system will affect KELOLAND tomorrow with winter storm watches in effect for the northern Black Hills. Look for a 1-2” snow for Pierre and Winner, with winds from the east at 10-20mph. Aberdeen should stay dry, with areas of light snow south and west of Sioux Falls.

Sunday is looking dry with highs still in the upper 30s in the west and upper 20s in Pierre. Sioux Falls and Aberdeen will hit the mid teens for highs.

I still think there will be chances for warmer weather next week. Our seven-day forecast now has 20s for Sioux Falls and that is warmer compared to single digits. We might even get a 30 degree day, but the snowpack is deep East River and we’ll have to wait and see if that becomes more likely.
