Clouds will thicken this evening and tonight in eastern KELOLAND, while they stay thick in central and western South Dakota. Along with the clouds, isolated snow showers will be possible in western South Dakota, but the snow will remain light with amounts being less than an inch. Winds will remain strong in western South Dakota, on the order of twenty-five to forty miles per hour from the northwest. Lows tonight will range form near twenty in western South Dakota to the single digits below zero in northern KELOLAND.
Saturday will be mostly cloudy and cold. Highs will only be in the teens and low twenties in eastern KELOLAND. That’s at least fifteen degrees below average. Central and western South Dakota will have highs in the middle to upper twenties with light snow showers still possible in western South Dakota. The cold will stay with us for Sunday with highs only in the teens and twenties.
Our next chance for snow will be on Monday. Snow will start to spread into western South Dakota Sunday night and Monday morning. The snow will move to eastern and southeastern KELOLAND on Monday. As of now, a couple inches will be possible for the southern half of the area, while the northern half will have less. We’ll watch it closely as the days go on.
After Monday’s snow, reinforcing shots of cold air will pour into the northern plains. We’ll easily have lows in the single digits below zero in northern KELOLAND with teens below being possible. Even the southern half of the area will be below zero, just how far below remains to be seen.
