A new cold front has already passed through much of South Dakota and currently straddles I-90. This will continue its trek south and many towns are already colder, as a result. Northeast winds behind this will strengthen and we’ll cold the next few days. Short story: the next few days will not be the prettiest West River.
There’s also a snow event we’re tracking. That’s due for arrival late tonight, after midnight, for FAR western SD. There’s a new Winter Weather Advisory for the NW corner of the state and a Freezing Rain Advisory just south of Pine Ridge (in Nebraska). A few flakes are possible tonight but more is likely tomorrow morning after sunrise. Because the NE wind is usually drier, we’ll have some drizzle/mist before the snow moves in. Wintry mix is very likely as opposed to just pure snow. We will NOT be warming up very much but this system doesn’t carry an overwhelming amount of moisture. A few inches are possible in the Hills, though most computer models bring less than three inches of snow for Rapid City itself.
This moves east tomorrow night. That’s when snow becomes likely in Pierre and Aberdeen, though on the lower end of things. Sioux Falls is in line for mostly rain, albeit very cold rain. Another rain-maker comes Wednesday, but is showing some signs of pulling east of KELOLAND. Most of this is gone by later in the day Thursday (Halloween). Sun returns next weekend.
