Wednesday may start with scattered light snow in western and south central South Dakota, but it looks like it will come to an end by the afternoon. Thursday will bring a quick hit of warmer weather to KELOLAND with temperatures returning to the forties in central and eastern South Dakota while the west will warm to the fifties.
We’ll start to see the leading edge of colder air move into western South Dakota Friday with highs falling to the forties. Colder air will move in for the weekend with highs only in the thirties for Saturday and Sunday. We’re even getting some signs of highs only in the twenties for Sunday and early next week. Light snow showers will be possible as the colder weather settles in, but at the moment things are looking light.
Rain will eventually switch to snow in western South Dakota this evening as the Hills have Winter Weather Advisories out for four to eight inches possible by Wednesday morning. The snow chances will remain slim in central and south central South Dakota tonight and into tomorrow. Snow amounts in the plains of western South Dakota tonight will stay around one to three inches, while any snow accumulation in central and south central South Dakota will stay less than an inch. Eastern and north central KELOLAND will stay dry tonight. Lows will fall to the twenties tonight with areas of fog by morning.
