Blizzard Warnings, Winter Storm Warnings, and Winter Weather Advisories are still in effect for KELOLAND Wednesday.
Snow, which will be heavy at times, will continue in northeast South Dakota this morning and into the early afternoon. Snow totals in northeast KELOLAND will range from six to twelve inches, with some isolated spots getting more than a foot. Winds will be strong today with speeds of twenty to thirty-five miles per hour. The strong winds will once again lead to blowing snow and reduced visibilities, especially in central and north central South Dakota were Blizzard Warnings remain in effect until 6pm this evening.
The wintry mix in southeast KELOLAND early this morning will become all snow by 10am. Periods of heavy snow will also be possible in the southeast, but the amounts will not be as great as the six to twelve inches in northeast KELOLAND. Expect about one to three inches along and south of Highway 34. The snow will end off in western South Dakota this morning with mostly sunny skies for the afternoon. Rapid City will warm to near forty today.
Things will continue to wind down this evening and tonight with lingering light snow showers in eastern KELOLAND. Winds will also die down as we go through this evening and tonight. Things turn much calmer for the rest of the work week and into the weekend. With the fresh snow pack in northern KELOLAND, temperatures will be cooler. Expect afternoon highs in the twenties for northern KELOLAND to the thirties and low forties in southern South Dakota.
Much warmer air will come back for early next week. Highs will return to the forties to near fifty for much of KELOLAND on Monday.
