Storm Center Update - Monday PM
April 18, 2011, 4:04 PM
Light rain will continue across the south tonight, amounts will be fairly light and a little snow may mix in at times. Later tonight and tomorrow more moisture surges in and we will see a better chance of rain and snow.
An advisory has been issued for north central South Dakota where 3-6 inches of snow may fall through the day and the overnight Tuesday. While this area will see enhanced snowfall most areas are looking at about 1-4 inches of snow. The Sioux Falls area will see more rain than snow; snow will start to mix in during the afternoon hours with accumulating snow possible late Tuesday. An inch or two may fall in the southeast.
Lingering precipitation is possible early Wednesday before we attempt to clear out late Wednesday. Many areas will see some sunshine on Wednesday before our next system moves in on Thursday. The path of that storm is still in question but rain and snow are again looking likely for Thursday and Friday.
Right now there is some spotty shower activity for the Easter weekend; however nothing too organized is expected. Temperatures will be warmer especially if we can get some sunshine. In any event outdoor activities around the Easter holiday stay tuned for rain chances through the week.
