Clouds along a slowly-moving warm front stuck around the latter half of the day but are showing signs of brief clearing. It still looks like more clouds will return to KELOLAND tonight but overall we should be calm and pleasant. If you have plans that take you outdoors, it’s best to get them done tonight and tomorrow because sharply colder air arrives Monday.
Flurries are possible in the northeast early on tomorrow. We will get the chance to melt at least some of the snow in the same area but quite a bit should remain in place through next week. Skies will be variably cloudy, with sunshine early in the day. Waves of clouds will move back into northern South Dakota by the afternoon in preparation of the next cold front.
Many could be looking at light snow on Monday, especially in the Black Hills and along the North Dakota border. The northern snow area should be under a couple of inches.
Cold air and a return to sunshine will be the two big stories Tuesday and the first half of Wednesday. Then the leading edge of a big winter storm pushes in from the west. Because of the cold early week, what we see will be snow. It doesn’t look like rain or mix will be a big issue. Moisture levels are fluctuating on every computer model run but we’re still looking at a significant storm to wrap up the workweek.
