This morning, we are seeing light snow on radar. The snow stretches from southwest South Dakota to near Mitchell. The strongest snowfall is contained in southwest South Dakota and is likely to remain there. The snow that stretches northeast will travel north but will remain light, if it even hits the ground at all. The afternoon will bring cloudy skies and highs in the 30s to most of KELOLAND.
Later today will have cooler weather continuing to move into the region and mixed bag of precip across the area. A low pressure will track up from the south and is expected to trigger cold rain in the southeast. The rest of the area already has colder air in place so any precip that falls will likely be snow.
The low pressure will keep moving northeast so rain and snow will still be in the area tonight but eastern KELOLAND has the greatest chance for rain.
Sunday, the low pressure will be on the move out of the area so mainly the southeast will continue to see a cold rain. The rest of KELOLAND will have cloudy skies and if the clouds can clear out fast enough, the west could actually see mostly clear skies.
The cool down continues next week with another shot at significant snow starting Monday. The biggest issue with the second snow event is whether or not the atmosphere will recover enough to produce more snow. But unlike this weekend's event, the atmosphere will be cold enough to produce only snow as the freezing line will be well to our south.
Next week will also start off with highs near 30 but as the cooler air sinks into KELOLAND, highs by next Friday could be near 20.
