Storm Center Update - Wednesday AM

sioux falls, sd

A cold front will be moving across KELOLAND bringing colder weather to the region today. 
Ahead of that front, there is some dense fog in north-central KELOLAND and a dense fog advisory until 9 a.m.

Winds are still breezy this morning in Sioux Falls and much of southern KELOLAND, so temperatures are warmer and are forecast to get above freezing in much of the southeast.

That warmer trend will be short-lived as colder weather arrives from the north and settles into KELOLAND over the next few days. Snow will become likely tonight West River with the snow slowly spreading east tomorrow. Snow is likely in Sioux Falls tomorrow night and Friday, but it will be fighting dry air as it advances to the east. The snow is expected to continue in southern KELOLAND into Saturday. Over 2-3 days, we expect a nuisance snow in Sioux Falls (around 2”) with a similar situation in Aberdeen. Heavier snow is likely west of Pierre where 3-7” is forecast. The coldest air with this system will move in during the first half of the weekend and highs will be in the single digits and teens, with subzero lows likely.

The weather will try to warm early next week, but will likely stay below normal. Normal highs are now in the lower to middle 30s.
