A cold front is closing in on KELOLAND from North Dakota. This will draw in more clouds than we had yesterday but the weather should cooperate for most regional travel.
There are still some slick spots southeast of Sioux Falls, especially well into Iowa. Winds should not be bad today, even with the cold front. That means your gas mileage won’t be impacted a huge amount.
Clouds will take a while to clear in eastern KELOLAND. Light north winds help clouds stick around much of the time, and that is the setup this morning. Don’t be surprised if it’s a fairly cloudy start to the weekend.
A few isolated flurries are possible tonight. They will likely concentrate in central South Dakota, where clouds will be thickest.
We then turn our attention to another system late tomorrow and into early Monday. This clipper system will bring the heaviest snow totals to North Dakota and should track right along our border. Snow should cross the Missouri River later tomorrow afternoon and will be near Aberdeen and the northeast late tomorrow evening and into Monday. Some in the far northeast could pick up light snows, up to a few inches.
The next storm will be mainly for the southwest Monday into Tuesday. The Black Hills could see some decent snow, with more than three inches possible.
Cold air will push in from Canada by Tuesday. Below zero lows will be felt quite a bit next week, and it’s the kind of setup we see a few times per winter.
Another chance of snow arrives Thursday to the Hills and will spread farther east on Friday.
