Clouds are moving back in after a clear and cold night. We’ll be on the cold side for today, as highs will be a few degrees either side of 40. We’re also tracking a small system bringing a chance of late-day rain and snow.
For most of KELOLAND, today’s big story will be the thick clouds moving in from the west. But east of the Missouri, there is the chance of some light snow. It looks like the start time will be mid-afternoon in south-central South Dakota. That will move ENE bringing a slightly better chance to the Sioux Falls area. Since most levels of the atmosphere are cold enough for snow, we could get a little more than flurries. Still, there is not much moisture in play here, so what falls should be less than an inch. We’re hoping for minimal travel problems with rain changing over to snow, but this time of year icy conditions are sometimes an issue.
This compact storm system will push off towards the Sisseton area after dark. Aberdeen has slightly less of a chance at moisture this evening than Sioux Falls. Again, what we see should be light.
The Hills could also see some light snow showers, but I’ve taken out the chance for Rapid City today. The far west is one of the few areas that could get some late-day sunshine. Tomorrow will again be cloudy. Though a few degrees warm than today, we’ll still only hit the lower 40s. We stay below average until mid-week when more sun returns.
On Tuesday a system moves through North Dakota that could provide a glancing plow to far northern South Dakota. We could see some light wintry mix in Aberdeen on Tuesday, but the chance is minimal from this far out.
The best part of the forecast is not until late week. We’ll climb into more seasonal territory, even reaching the lower 60s in the far west. Still, the summer-like feel doesn’t seem likely for a while!
