Storm Center Update - Sunday PM

Warm weather lasts through the early afternoon on Tuesday. The most unique weather story tonight will be the halo around the bright moon. It’s actually caused by the moonlight refracting through high-level ice crystals and makes for a pretty sight.

Tomorrow we could see a few records broken, with most of KELOLAND hitting the 50s. Expect more of the same Tuesday. That is also when a strong cold front comes out of Canada. This is Arctic air breaking through finally. We’ll start to cool down before sunset and then it gets interesting late Tuesday night and especially Wednesday morning. Behind the actual front comes the chance for snowfall to go along with stronger northwest breezes. The best chance for snow is the Black Hills, but all of KELOLAND could see a fractional amount. We are talking less than an inch for those who do get snow, but much will not even be measurable, even if you can see it.

The biggest irritant for most will be the strong winds blowing the snow and causing reduced visibilities on the roads. This will likely only be an issue for a few areas on the Wednesday morning commute to work and school. It’s not a major winter storm by any means.

Highs Thursday will actually be a couple of degrees below normal, so you’ll definitely want to break out the layers and coats.
