Storm Center Update - Friday AM

sioux falls, sd

Areas of light snow are ending this morning, but roads are covered with snow and ice and slippery this morning.

The heaviest snowfall fell yesterday West River with general amounts of 3-7". Rapid City checked in with about 5". The snow will be returning again tonight, mainly in southern KELOLAND as the jet stream causes a broad swath of snow across our area.

Winter weather advisories are in effect for far southwestern South Dakota through Saturday morning where another 3-5" could fall. Areas of light snow will accumulate to 1-3" Saturday morning farther east including Sioux Falls. We'll be watching the temperature too, with readings well below zero this morning in the north and the afternoon highs in the single digits in most areas.

Highs will be climbing across KELOLAND by Sunday with 20s and 30s more common. Next week will be warmer, but considering normal highs should be in the 30s and 40s, it's safe to say it will be below normal as well. It does look dry as the main storm track stays to our south.
