The warm air for the first couple days of December is just a distant memory now as cold and snow have overtaken KELOLAND. The cold air is something we'll have to get used to, especially those who are in eastern KELOLAND.
It's a day of clean-up. People are out shoveling sidewalks and driveways. Car windows need to be scraped and you can even hear the sound of a snow blower or two around the neighborhood. While the snow wasn't heavy and many locations only saw an inch or two, the cold and the wind made up for it.
With the northwest flow in place, we'll have to watch for waves in the atmosphere, which can trigger light snow showers. This type of pattern will continue through Wednesday.
Snow amounts will not be heavy since many locations will only see an inch.
While we'll stay warm this weekend, another hit of cold air will come in from the north. This one will bring another round of snow in early next week.
As we go deeper into winter, the hits of cold air will start to push farther and farther into western South Dakota and eventually into the western United States as winter starts to settle in.

The cold air has arrived and it will most likely stick around for quite some time.
