Storm Center Update - Monday AM March 20

It’s a quiet start to the work week, but that will change.

Temperatures this morning are in the 30s and 40s with light northerly winds.  The winds will remain light with speeds averaging 10-15 mph from the north/northeast. 


With the north winds, expect a cooler day with highs in the 40s and 50s.  That’s slightly above average for the first day of spring!


A weak wave in the atmosphere will spark light rain and snow showers for tonight.  There might be enough snow to generate around an inch of accumulation.  The best location for accumulating snow will be in western to south central South Dakota.  Some of the precipitation will extend into the morning hours for tomorrow and eventually switch to all rain during the late morning. 


Highs for tomorrow will be in the 40s.


Wednesday will feature another slight chance for light rain and light snow with highs in the 40s.  While the main weather maker waits until Thursday.


Low pressure will strengthen and move into the central United States on Thursday.  This will allow for a lot of moisture to stream in from the south.  We’ll eventually interact with the moisture in the form of widespread rain (maybe some rumbles of thunder) for Thursday into Friday.  There will also be a chance for snow.  As of now, the snow chances will be at night and into the early morning hours. 


Models are hinting at around an inch of moisture for southern KELOLAND for the end of the work week.

The coming weekend is looking dry with afternoon highs rebounding to the 50s.
