The strong northwest winds will be decreasing gradually this afternoon, but blowing snow will be a problem in the countryside through the morning. Highs will be in the upper teens in the northeast, with lower to middle 20s elsewhere.
We have a quieter forecast for Wednesday and Thursday, but some precipitation is forecast again by Friday. We'll keep an eye on the track of that system. Some freezing drizzle will be possible ahead of it as some warm air is drawn into the region, but light snow will also be likely behind the low, with the best chances in the northern half of KELOLAND.
Strong winds and blowing snow continue this morning as a strong storm system continues to pull away from KELOLAND. Sioux Falls officially picked up 1", but Larchwood had 6"! We also have reports of heavier snowfall from Luverne to Slayton around 4-5". Folks in the Black Hills are also reporting heavy snowfall…with 36" in Lead and over 1 foot in Deadwood. Needless to say, the skiers are happy this morning.
