Storm Center Update - Tuesday AM
December 13, 2011, 5:52 AM
Fog once again throughout much of KELOLAND this morning. Along with the fog, pockets of freezing drizzle are possible in central and south central South Dakota. As we go into the afternoon, a wintery mix is likely in south central South Dakota while rain will be likely in southeast KELOLAND. The rain and snow will continue through the overnight with rain mainly falling along and east from Yankton, Sioux Falls to Marshall. Some of this area has the possibility of receiving an inch or more of rain tonight and Wednesday, especially in Iowa. To the north and west of this, light rain and light snow will be possible tonight through Wednesday. The rain amounts will not be as high, but a couple of tenths to a half inch will be possible. I don’t expect a lot of snow out of this system, it’s just too warm. Any snow we get will generally stay less than an inch.
After the system leaves, colder air will move into the upper plains. Highs for Thursday and Friday will only be in the teens and twenties in eastern KELOLAND. A couple of flurries or light snow showers will also be possible on Friday.
The weekend is looking dry with warming temperatures. Highs will warm back to the thirties and forties for Saturday and Sunday.
