The radar is looking impressive to the south of KELOLAND; it is showing widespread snow in eastern Nebraska.
The snow is moving north but it will continue to battle dry air at the lower levels in southeast South Dakota and northwest Iowa. Expect snow to hit the ground south of Interstate 90 (in South Dakota) shortly before sunset and north of Interstate 90 after sunset. Winter Weather Advisories are in effect in south central to southeast KELOLAND tonight into Friday morning.
Our snow amounts haven’t changed; we’re still thinking two to five inches from Winner to Chamberlain and east along Interstate 29 into Minnesota (Between Highways 18 and 34). Snow will be heavier south of that area (about 4-8”) and lighter north of that area (1-3”). Temperatures will remain below average with highs in the teens and twenties.
Once this system leaves, Saturday will be dry. There is a chance for snow on Sunday and Monday, but models have cut back on the moisture totals. Let’s let the atmosphere settle and the models adjust to what this recent storm system leaves behind before getting too obsessive with snowfall amounts. I am confident temperatures will remain below average for the rest of the month.
