Clear skies and cold temperatures will continue this evening and tonight. Expect overnight lows in eastern KELOALND to fall to the single digits and teens early tonight, then slowly warm toward sunrise. Expect a low near zero in central South Dakota with lower teens in western KELOLAND.
Clouds will increase throughout the day on Wednesday with light snow developing in western and central South Dakota during the afternoon. The snow will move into eastern KELOLAND Wednesday night. Models have shifted the bulk of the precipitation well to our south; this means snow amounts in KELOLAND will not be as much as we thought earlier. There will still be areas in south central and southeast KELOLAND with amounts of three to six inches. Amounts will be less north of Interstate 90. With breezy winds during the day on Thursday, visibilities will be reduced and travel will become hazardous. Be alert for changing weather and road conditions on Thursday.
With the southern trend on the models, Friday might end up dry for a lot of us, but temperatures will remain cold with highs in the teens and twenties. The next system will arrive on Sunday and Monday with another round of snow possible.
