Storm Center Update - Wednesday PM
November 30, 2011, 2:15 PM
Clouds will remain over KELOLAND this evening and tonight. Along with the clouds, snow will develop in western South Dakota this evening and last through the overnight. Winter Storm Warnings are in affect for the northern Hills as six inches or more of snow will be possible by Thursday morning for places such as Lead and Deadwood. Rapid City will have far less snow, but a couple of inches can not be ruled out. Snow will be very light and scattered in central and eastern KELOLAND with amounts staying less than an inch. Temperatures will also be much cooler with highs in the twenties for much of the area. A breezy north wind of fifteen to twenty-five miles per hour will make it feel even colder.
Friday will be dry and warmer ahead of the next system that can clip southeast KELOLAND on Saturday. The best chance for snow will be in northwest Iowa Saturday and Saturday night. As of now, I wouldn’t be surprised for parts of Iowa to get at least three to four inches of snow. Amounts will be far less in Minnesota and South Dakota. Of course, there’s still uncertainty in the storm track as many things can change in the next three days. Stay tuned.
The rest of the forecast for Sunday and next week is looking dry with hits of warm and cold air about every other day.
