Sioux Falls, SD
A major storm continues to move through KELOLAND and more impacts are likely the next 24-48 hours. Major power problems continue in the southeast with tree limbs down with heavy ice. Going forward, heavy snow will continue to move through western SD at the rate of 1” an hour in some areas.
We are looking at heavy snow tonight East River, mainly affecting Mitchell, Yankton, Sioux Falls, Brookings, Watertown, and Marshall. New snow totals tonight and tomorrow could be 6-10” in many of these areas. Thunder snow is also possible tonight. The weight of the snow on the top of the ice will create additional stress to trees and power lines.
Winds will continue from the north at 15-25mph the next couple of days. Higher gusts will be possible in southwestern MN.
The system will leave KELOLAND Thursday night. More rain is possible this weekend, with more snow in the far north. More details as the day continues.
