Clouds are thickening up across the region, and we may even see some snow flurries (no accumulation) this afternoon. Temperatures will hold steady, in the teens in the south and single digits in the north.
Tonight we will have a better chance of light snow, but amounts will be minimal – under 1”. Arctic air will seep down from the north, so our nighttime lows will be in the single digits above zero in the south, and the single digits below zero in the north.
Tomorrow will be another cool day. We expect a lot of clouds to hang around, and a light NW breeze will keep us in the teens East River. Again, western South Dakota will miss the Arctic air, so Rapid City will be in the mid 30s.
Sunday will see similar temperatures. The good news arrives early next week, with temperatures at- or above-normal for mid-December. Unfortunately, they won’t hold for long. We’re still expecting an Arctic blast starting the weekend before Christmas right through the holiday period.
