Snow also continues in western KELOLAND with slush covered roads between Rapid City and Murdo. Be careful and slow down in those areas this morning. A trace to 3-4” of snow has been reported in many areas West River.
Look for more showers today with some snow in the west and north. Blustery north winds will continue with highs mainly in the 40s.
Some more snow may mix in with the rain tonight. A few flakes of snow are possible even in Sioux Falls. Temperatures will still be in the 40s tomorrow in most areas, which is still well below normal. More wind is forecast from the northwest at 20-40 mph and a few scattered showers will be possible.
A slow warm up is in the forecast toward the end of the week. We still have a chance of scattered showers this weekend, mainly on Sunday. By the way, next week is looking much warmer, something many of you will be looking forward too after this recent cool down.
