We have a busy day of weather in the forecast for much of KELOLAND. Winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories have been issued for many areas. Snow will be developing from northwest to southeast during the morning. Headlines for the heaviest snow will be in the southeast, where winter storms warnings include Brookings, Marshall, Sioux Falls, Worthington, and all of our NW IA counties.
Keep in mind the majority of the snow will fall over a 6 hour period. For Sioux Falls, we expect the heaviest snowfall between noon and 6pm, with snow decreasing after that point. Winds will be steady from the southeast at 15-25 mph ahead of the low pressure center in SE SD, NW IA, and SW MN during the snow. This will lead to reduced visibilities to around ¼ mile at times.
Snowfall accumulations will be 5-8” in the Sioux Falls area and points east. Slightly lesser totals will fall in northeastern SD with closer to 3” in Aberdeen. Pierre may have similar amounts to Aberdeen, but lighter accumulations are expected in Rapid City.
Stay tuned for more details on KELOLAND This Morning.
