Storm Center Update - Sunday PM
November 6, 2011, 7:54 PM
Going into the workweek the thing becoming quickly apparent is the Monday morning cold snap at the back end of a cold front. Tomorrow's starts in the low 20s for most areas around KELOLAND, so give yourself a few minutes to warm up the ride.
We'll top out in the middle to upper 40s, with Sioux Falls peaking at 50.
The only big weather-maker comes Monday night through Tuesday, but only for the extreme southwest of South Dakota and northwest of Iowa. We'll first run into gusty winds from the south, but that warm spell won't last long. The real bulk of the system comes in during Election Day. Most areas that get anything will pick up rain but snowfall is certainly not out of the question. Iowa will receive the brunt, and therefore some counties to Sioux Fall's southwest could see a couple of inches. Brian Karstens will be in tomorrow morning to detail the latest information. Sioux Falls hovers right over the boundary for rain/snow and things will be clearer come tomorrow.
Apart from that Tuesday event in the SE, the rest of the week looks dry and seasonal. Highs trend through the middle and upper 40s throughout.
The only departure from that comes Sunday in Rapid City. I've placed a 20% chance of showers there for next Sunday, as waves are pushed out of the Rockies.
Aberdeen and our friends north could see increased cloud cover from systems developing in Alberta and tracking east, but showers are too remote for me to mention now.
Have a great week!
