As the snow starts flying in western South Dakota on Saturday, the temperatures will tumble in the east. Highs on Saturday will only hit the single digits and teens in the east while western South Dakota hits the lower twenties. Some of the light snow might also hit Pierre and south central South Dakota Saturday, with amounts of a couple of inches possible. But western KELOLAND has the best chance top get snow this weekend with amounts around three inches being common. The snow will eventually pass into southeast KELOLAND Sunday night and into Monday, while much of northeast South Dakota misses out.
The northeast will not be able to escape the cold. Low temperatures for Aberdeen and much of northeast South Dakota will stay below zero with highs in the single digits starting on Saturday. He below zero lows will also stretch into central and western South Dakota starting on Tuesday. Models are trying to show a slow warm-up by the end of next week.
Another weak disturbance will give parts of eastern KELOLAND isolated snow showers tonight and tomorrow. Most locations will only receive a dusting of snow but some areas east of Interstate 29 might be able to get around an inch. Dry skies in central and western KELOLAND will continue tonight and Friday but snow will return to western South Dakota on Saturday.
