A busy weather pattern is ahead in KELOLAND as another winter storm develops. First, winter storm watch has been posted for much of eastern KELOLAND starting tomorrow afternoon into Friday. Heavy snow and strong winds will be possible in the watch area.
Snow is already falling in western KELOLAND, where 2-3” may accumulate today in Rapid City. Temperatures will remain chilly with highs in the lower 40s in Sioux Falls and 30s elsewhere.
Areas of rain and snow will continue to expand tonight, but the heart of the storm system will arrive tomorrow. Heavy snow will become likely during the morning from northcentral Nebraska…extending northeast toward Watertown and Brookings.
The initial snow forecast indicates heavy snow potential across much of eastern KELOLAND. The highest chances of heavy snow will be in western MN, but good portion of eastern SD will also need to monitor this storm. 4+” seems very probable at this time. Strong north winds will also develop behind the system tomorrow into early Friday.
Stay tuned for the latest forecasts through the day.
