Deep Frost In The Ground

March 17, 2014, 6:38 PM by Scot Mundt

Deep Frost In The Ground

We're more than halfway through March and while it's nice to get the longer daylight and warm temperatures, we're still seeing some of the effects of the cold winter.  In fact, the ground froze down to nearly two feet in and around the Sioux Falls area and reached 30 to 40 inches as you move north of Interstate 90.

As the snow and ice melt, you may notice a lot of standing water.  That's because with the deep freeze in the ground, the water has no place to go.  Unfortunately, this is also leading to an increase in basement flooding and water main breaks.

Moisture is on the way tonight and Tuesday.  Some of the computer models are spitting out as much as a quarter to a half inch in parts of eastern KELOLAND.  Flooding issues may become more common if more storm systems roll through before the ground thaws.
