Temperatures today have recovered somewhat from yesterday but remain below average. Clouds have remained fairly stationary this afternoon but should move closer to the Minnesota border by early evening. As expected, the storm we’ve been watching has slowed its pace and the northern part is along the Montana border. We’ll start by seeing a little rain in far SW South Dakota late this afternoon and snow should move in later in the evening.
Most computer outputs bring the best snowfall to central and west-central South Dakota. It looks like it will come down somewhat harder during the overnight hours. Still, this doesn’t look like a huge moisture maker. Some could see 2-4 inches along the Missouri River. There should be some enhancement in the northern Black Hills as winds come up the slopes. Snowfall could be a bit heavier there, which is typical.
Snow will move into the east by late tonight and into the morning hours of tomorrow. The moisture looks to wind down right around the Sioux Falls area. A little leftover moisture should linger in the northeast corner before heading back into North Dakota tomorrow.
Saturday will be a few degrees warmer but the next seven days will all be colder than average. On Sunday another round of moisture rides along the Nebraska border. The best chances of snow stay along and south of Interstate 90.
Partly cloudy skies hang around much of next week with a subtly warming trend Wednesday into Thursday.
