Skies will slowly start to break overnight with decreasing winds. Lows will fall to the single digits over the fresh snow cover in northeast KELOLAND while teens will be common in western, central, and southeast South Dakota. The cold air will continue tomorrow with highs in the twenties and thirties under partly cloudy skies.
Our next chance for snow arrives on Friday. As a weak system moves to our southwest, clouds will thicken as early as Thursday night with developing light rain and light snow starting in western South Dakota and moving east Friday. As of now, the snow will stay fairly light but a couple of inches of accumulation are possible by Friday night. Temperatures will remain well below average with highs in the twenties and thirties.
The weekend will consist of lingering light snow showers on Saturday with dry skies on Sunday. Temperatures will once remain well below average with highs in the twenties and thirties. There’s some hope for warmer weather by the middle of next week.
Scattered light snow and flurries will slowly come to an end this evening and tonight. Snow amounts from last night and today are heaviest in northeast KELOLAND where three to as much as twelve inches or more are common from Aberdeen to Watertown and northeast. Any additional amounts this evening will stay less than an inch.
