It’s a chilly morning in much of KELOLAND, but today will be “warmer” compared to some of the weather coming up this week. We are also tracking light snow moving across the areas, but most of the amounts will be less than 1 inch. Highs will rebound into the mid teens in Sioux Falls, 7 degrees in Aberdeen, lower 20s in Pierre, and lower 30s in Rapid City. Northwest winds will also pick up 20-30 mph in Pierre this afternoon.
More light to moderate snow will be in the forecast tomorrow as another disturbance moves across KELOLAND. A wide swath of 1-3” will be possible tomorrow into early Wednesday, with some locally heavier totals possible to around 4”. We’ll keep an eye on those trends, and temperatures will be very cold during the snow…making the snowfall very light and fluffy.
The coldest day of the week will be Thursday with highs below zero in many spots East River. It does look warmer on Friday, but developing south winds could create some areas of blowing snow. While temperatures will be warmer on Saturday, it appears another strong arctic cold front will create strong winds from the northwest again at some point late Saturday or early Sunday. We’ll keep a close eye on those trends too.
