Storm Center Update - Sunday 7:00 PM

You can find an afternoon update with the Warning maps and storm location on KELOLAND.com/weather.

A line of snow showers is racing into eastern South Dakota this evening with plenty of wind ahead of and behind the system.  A Blizzard Warning is posted for tonight through tomorrow in the northeast and through parts of Minnesota.  There is still a Winter Weather Advisory still for Sioux Falls up to the north, with Brookings right on the edge of the Advisory and Warning. 
As we’ve been talking the past few days, this is more of a wind event than a heavy snow producer.  Blowing snow out of North Dakota should cause reduced visibility along with pockets of whiteout conditions. 
Those that see snow should pick up anywhere from a trace to a few inches.  There is slightly more moisture up near Sisseton and also down in southwest Minnesota.  The snow will be difficult to measure and could drift and it will appear like it’s snowing even after the actual snow is done. 
Skies could clear somewhat in the far west tomorrow but the wind will remain very strong.
Early Tuesday a weak clipper will pull into the northeast from North Dakota.  Isolated light snow is possible.  The start of spring won’t bring much of a warming trend.  More clouds arrive from Wednesday and will last through next weekend.  There is a chance of snow from late Thursday and into Saturday, depending on your location.
