Snow continues to develop in northern KELOLAND Tuesday morning, a trend that will expand south and east during the day. We expect this system to be mainly a nuisance snowfall, but amounts will likely trend in the one to three inches for Aberdeen, Brookings, Sioux Falls, and Worthington.
Locally heavier amounts are possible around Brookings and Marshall…a trend we’ll keep an eye on through the day. Snowfall amounts will be less than one inches in both Pierre and Rapid City. Temperatures will be warmer today, with highs in the lower 20s in Sioux Falls and near 30 in Rapid City.
Snow will exit southeastern KELOLAND this evening and temperatures will be cold, but not as cold as some of the numbers the past few days. A warmer trend will be on the way tomorrow, with highs in the mid 40s in Rapid City and mid 20s in Aberdeen and Sioux Falls.
Thursday should be a much warmer day and a good day for some melting snow. We’ll project Sioux Falls into the mid 30s, but 50s are possible West River.
The warmer trend will slide back again Friday and Saturday, but we should still manage 20s and 30s for highs. Even some rain or snow will be possible on Friday with the passage of a cold front.
While the weekend will start a bit cooler, a big warming trend is still forecast by Sunday. The snow cover will be biggest limiting factor in the warm up, so we’ll be carefully monitoring how fast things start melting. Plan on 40s and 50s for highs…a welcome change for sure!
