We have yet another windy day in KELOLAND, with blowing snow issues in much of the northeast. Blizzard warnings will remain in effect for Watertown, Summit, Sisseton, and Milbank until 3pm. Strong winds gusting over 40mph will result in visibility problems into the early afternoon. Travel will remain dangerous in these areas until the wind diminishes, especially late in the afternoon. Sioux Falls, much of SW MN, and the Aberdeen area will be under winter weather advisories for light snow and blowing snow today. Winds will continue to gust over 40mph into the east afternoon, with a decreasing wind trend from north to south during the day. Rapid City and Pierre have also had strong winds, with wind advisories posted and high wind warnings for Rapid City.
The wind will diminish tonight at 5-15mph from the west. Overnight lows will drop into the upper teens and lower 20s in the east, with 30s in the far west. This will set the stage for a very mild day on Sunday with highs in the upper 30s in Sioux Falls, mid 30s in Aberdeen, mid 40s in Pierre, and lower 50s in Rapid City. Snow cover will make the biggest difference.
Colder air will return Monday into Tuesday as temperature slide back below normal. Although it looks much colder, no major snow is in the forecast at this time.
