We have another chilly morning in KELOLAND with areas of snow once again in western South Dakota. The snow will continue to affect Rapid City and Pierre off and on through the morning, but most of the amounts should be under 2”. Speaking of snowfall, yesterday’s snowfall totaled 1.2” in Sioux Falls, with heavier totals to the north. Volga picked up 5.5”…one of the heavier amounts we could find.
Here are a few additional snowfall totals.
Highs will stay in the 30s today in much of KELOLAND, but a big change is just around the corner.
Saturday will be significantly warmer with highs back in the upper 60s to near 70 in both Pierre and Rapid City. Aberdeen and Sioux Falls will be cooler in the 50s with more wind from the south.
Temperatures will likely shift into the 60s for Sioux Falls on Sunday as the next storm system develops to our southwest. Temperatures in Aberdeen, Pierre, and Rapid City will be somewhat, especially late in the afternoon.
A significant late March storm will develop Sunday night on Monday. There is an increasing probability of a high wind and snow event in parts of KELOLAND. Areas NW of Sioux Falls are at most risk and blizzard will be possible. Stay tuned to the latest forecast through the day and into the weekend.
There is also another storm system on the horizon by Wednesday. We still have a lot questions surrounding the eventual path and intensity of this system, but stay tuned for details on that storm as well.
