Partly cloudy skies will be likely for much of KELOLAND this evening and tonight. Our breezy conditions from the afternoon will eventually become light during the overnight. Lows will eventually fall to the teens and twenties.
Skies will start partly cloudy on Tuesday but they will soon be followed by mostly cloudy skies. Highs will reach the thirties and forties with light north winds.
Rain and snow will once again start in western and south central South Dakota Tuesday evening. The wintery mix will move east and northeast Tuesday night into Wednesday. Numerous Winter Storm Watches are posted for Tuesday night into Wednesday for western, central, east central, and northeast South Dakota. The main threats under the watch are for snow amounts of at least six inches accompanied by strong north/northwest winds.
Areas not in the watch in southeast South Dakota, northwest Iowa, and southwest Minnesota can expect a wintery mix to start late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Models are spitting out a half to a full inch for about the southern half of KELOLAND. As the system gets closer, above freezing air should be wrapped in. This will give southeast KELOLAND (from Marshall, to Brookings to near Wagner and east) a chance for a wintery mix to plain rain. West of this area, snow will be likely with strong northerly winds. Be aware of changing weather conditions over the next couple of days.
