Blizzard conditions continue in the northeast this morning as a major winter storm begins to depart the region. Aberdeen picked up 13.2”, 16.5” in Webster, and 12” in Sisseton. We have many more snow reports and here’s a link to the snowfall totals.
Temperatures will be holding in the lower 20s today as the northwest winds decrease in eastern KELOLAND. Sunny skies will expand across the west with highs around 30 in in Rapid City.
While temperatures will be chilly tonight, a developing warm front will help boost the mercury by tomorrow morning, with widespread 30s likely tomorrow. In fact, the weather looks even warmer by Wednesday with many areas in the west into the 40s. There may be fog issues at some point too because of the recent snowfall…something we will watch through the week.
We will also be tracking the next clipper system late Wednesday night and Thursday morning. While snowfall doesn’t look too heavy, strong northwest winds could create blowing snow issues. That could be especially true in the far northeast where temperatures may not get warm enough to crust over the snow on the ground.
Temperatures will also be much colder behind the clipper into the teens again by the end of the week.
