Storm Center Update-Tuesday AM
January 31, 2012, 5:43 AM
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Temperatures will be slightly cooler today, but still above normal in most areas in the 40s this afternoon under partly cloudy skies. Winds will be from the west or northwest at 10-20 with a few higher gusts.
Dry weather is forecast tonight with lows in the upper teens to lower 20s. This will set the stage for another mild day tomorrow with highs in the mid 40s in Sioux Falls and upper 30s around Aberdeen. Pierre and Rapid City will be warmer in the lower 50s.
The next story to watch is a developing storm for Friday into Saturday. This storm will be tracking across Kansas, so heavy rain or snow is likely across Kansas and Nebraska. This storm will also produce thunderstorms across the southern plains. The question is whether or not this storm take a left turn and affects southern KELOLAND. There is some support behind this solution, but it’s only one of several solutions out there, many of which keep the bulk of the storm just to our south. My one concern is the fact the northern solution affecting southern KELOLAND is coming from one of the most accurate computer models this winter. Somebody in the plains will end up with 6-12” of snow from this storm, so while Nebraska is the favored target right now, we’ll continue to monitor the forecast carefully.
