Storm Center Update Saturday PM - February 17

A few rounds of snow will pass through the upper Midwest over the next few days. The first round will pass north of KELOLAND through North Dakota but a few counties along the border of North and South Dakota may see some light snow tonight. Otherwise, we’ll just see passing clouds in KELOLAND as overnight lows dip into the teens to near 20.

Sunday will be interesting. A warm from will push north along eastern KELOLAND which will bring in some warm air. Right now, expected highs in east KELOLAND will reach the 30s and 40s but the farther southeast you go, say along the Yankton area, 50s are not out of the question tomorrow afternoon. At the same time of the warm front, a cold front will swing in from the west and that will usher in some much colder air for the start to your work week. Along with the colder air, snow should move into KELOLAND from west to east late Sunday and last into Tuesday.



A Winter Storm Watch will go into effect tomorrow for western KELOLAND and last through Monday afternoon. This was issued for snowfall amounts of four to seven inches with locally higher amounts up to nine.


Monday will see a chill in the air with afternoon temps in the single digits and teens. Snowfall looks to continue into Tuesday as cold air controls the region. Tuesday morning will be subzero, with afternoon highs only in the single digits and teens.


The atmosphere should quiet down afterwards with sunshine and chilly temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday. Highs will be in the single digits and teens Wednesday, 20s to near 30 for Thursday.

Next weekend will stay warm with afternoon highs in the 20s and 30s with some of the long range models trying to bring in some snow at the end of the week.

The snowfall from this morning ranged from just a couple tenths of an inch north of Sioux Falls to just shy of two inches just west of Sioux Falls. Northwest Iowa saw amounts near one inch while Southwest Minnesota had amounts ranging from one to one and a half inches.
