Clouds are covering most of the region, with only some breaks in the central part of South Dakota. We may see a little sunshine tomorrow, but thicker clouds will come in as we see a chance of light snow for your day on Monday.
We’ve been talking about several bouts of strong winds over the next few days, due to persistent strong NW wind at the jet stream level. The first bit of those winds have pushed wind gusts over 30 mph in the western edge of South Dakota during the late afternoon. Breezy conditions will spread across the region during the overnight hours.
But a broader area of clouds/wind comes with a “clipper” system on Monday into Tuesday. There is the possibility of light snow or light rain, but mostly we’ll notice the strong NW winds that follow it. There is a High Wind Watch posted for western and south central SD for Monday afternoon and night. Again, any light snow that falls (or light rain during the warmer periods) will be of minor accumulations – with the exception of the Black Hills, which could see 6”.
Tuesday will be a little cooler, but strong winds will blow over eastern KELOLAND - NW 20-30 mph. Blowing snow could be a problem in the NE corner of the state.
