Snow Just Keeps On Falling

April 16, 2014, 5:25 PM by Grant Smith

Snow Just Keeps On Falling

Snow keeps making its way into KELOLAND. So when can we officially say goodbye to it? If we look at the climatology of South Dakota, it won’t be until the end of May.

By official climate records, Sioux Falls doesn't get any snow in May. But if we go beyond the 30 year standard, Sioux Falls has had 16 snow events from 1892 to 1976. Most of those were Trace events but in the 1943 and 1944, Sioux Falls received two inches and three inches of snow.

Elsewhere in KELOLAND, Rapid City averages just over one inch of snow in May but has had up to eleven and half inches. In Aberdeen, their largest snow event was in 1943 where two inches fell.

So it looks like KELOLAND will have to keep dealing with possible snow until at least June. That is when climatology says we are completely in the clear. Looking ahead to the next seven days, KELOLAND will be on a warming trend giving 70s in the beginning of next week.
