Snow continues to expand to the south and east Monday morning, making for difficult driving conditions in much of KELOLAND. There are a number of late starts and other announcements on the KELOLAND Closeline as snow will continue to impact the roads today.
Look for north winds at 10-20 miles per hour, but the winds will increase tonight and tomorrow, which will contribute to blowing and drifting. Winter weather advisories are in effect for much of KELOLAND today, and our East River counties will see that advisory continue tomorrow because of the blowing snow threat.
Snowfall totals will be generally 4-8 inches East River, with a pocket of 8+ inches including Huron, Brookings, Marshall and Worthington. West River areas will average 2-4 inches.
The other headline will be the bitterly cold air as wind chills will stay well below zero through Wednesday. If you can endure the bitterly cold air the next couple of days, the weather looks much warmer by Thursday and Friday with highs returning to the 30s in many areas East River and 40s in the west.
