A fresh blanket of snow covers much of western and central KELOLAND. A band of heavier snow, some four to six inches fell from near Miller west to Pierre and Rapid City. Roads are snowpacked and slippery in many areas of central SD with some blowing snow. The fresh snow cover is also helping temperatures fall Friday morning, with subzero readings common in northern areas.
It will be a cold Friday in most of KELOLAND, with highs near 12 in Sioux Falls and 6 in Aberdeen. The weather looks a little warmer by Saturday, but this will occur ahead of another arctic cold front Saturday night. A little light snow is possible Saturday night and Sunday as temperatures turn bitterly cold. Highs on Sunday will struggle above zero in Aberdeen.
The weather still looks cold on Monday, but a warmer trend is expected on Christmas Eve. We may have some stronger winds to deal with into Christmas, something we’ll keep an eye on too.
