Sioux Falls, SD
We are tracking areas of rain this morning in much of eastern KELOLAND with pockets of snow in the northern Black Hills. We also have some black ice on the roads around Pierre and areas of fog near Watertown, Redfield, and Mobridge. The rain will continue today in the southeast, with rain and snow possible in Pierre, Rapid City, and Aberdeen.
Temperatures will be in the 30s much of the day with strong winds developing around Rapid City. As colder air wraps into the storms system, winter weather advisories will be in effect for much of western KELOLAND. The northern Black Hills will have a winter storm warning.
The best chances of heavy snow will stay in the northern Black Hills where 6-12” will be possible through tomorrow AM. On the low end, Sioux Falls may only see a trace to an inch with temperatures still above freezing much of the day tomorrow. A band of 2-5” of snow looks likely in south-central KELOLAND, with 1-3” possible northward toward Mobridge. Don’t forget about the wind tonight and tomorrow West River.
The forecast still looks dry on Christmas Eve with some chance of light snow late Christmas Day into Friday. More details on that through the day.
