Storm Center Update-Wednesday AM
February 1, 2012, 5:45 AM
SIOUX FALLS, SD - We are forecasting another very mild day in KELOLAND with highs rebounding into the mid to upper 40s in Sioux Falls and Aberdeen, with mid to upper 50s in Pierre and Rapid City. Winds will be from the west at 5-15mph.
Dry weather will continue tonight and tomorrow with highs again tomorrow above normal, but a little cooler than today. Temperatures will continue to cool on Friday as clouds increase and winds turn to the southeast.
Our attention then turns to a powerful storm developing this weekend. It appears the worst of this storm will go south into Nebraska and eventually Iowa. However, some of the overnight data has shifted the storm track farther north again, so areas south toward the Nebraska border into NW IA should be watching the track of this storm carefully. Somebody in the plains could easily get 6-12” of snow from this storm. Weather balloons will collect better data this morning in California now that the system is moving onshore. This should help determine a more accurate track of the storm, and we’ll have that data in time for Midday in KELOLAND.
