Areas of snow will continue to develop across KELOLAND with a winter weather advisory in effect for Mitchell, Sioux Falls, Yankton, Worthington, and Sheldon. Plan on snow in most corners of KELOLAND, but the snowfall rates will be heaviest across the advisory area. Snow totals of 2-5” are forecast in the advisory area, with 1-3” still likely in Aberdeen, Watertown, and Pierre. Snow won’t be as heavy in Rapid City, but an inch is possible. Highs will be in the mid teens to near 20. Winds will be from the southeast at 5-15mph in most areas, so some drifting will be possible in the open areas, but substantial blowing and drifting is not forecast.
Snow will be ending overnight in the central and the northeast. Sioux Falls will have a chance of snow through mid morning, with highs returning to near 20 in the afternoon. Winds will stay mainly at 5-15mph from the north, so blowing and drifting should stay at a minimum.
The forecast looks quiet for the weekend and temperatures will remain in the upper teens to lower 20s in the east, with 30s in the west. No major storms are in the forecast through the 7 day outlook.
