KELOLAND is starting to see signs of cooler weather as we start to go from summer to autumn.
Meteorological fall starts in just a few days and snow may be in the mix.
Another round of rain and severe weather moved through Monday, if you’re getting tired of it just think snow isn’t that far away.
Parts of KELOLAND had severe weather Sunday and again Monday. Along with the storms, heavy rain fell in many locations to add to the record amounts in eastern and southeast KELOLAND for the summer.
We start fall this weekend, and we’re already seeing signs for the changing of the seasons.
Winter Weather Advisories are out for the higher elevations in Montana and Wyoming. The current thinking is snow amounts of one to four inches will be common for elevations below 9000 feet, but amounts up to eight inches will be possible above 9000.
By comparison, the earliest we’ve seen at least an inch of snow in the higher elevations of the Black Hills, is August 24 with an inch and a half in 1910. Sioux Falls’ earliest 1 inch snow is October 1. It happened in 1999 when just over two and a half inches fell.
KELOLAND will get brushed by the cooler air tomorrow as temperatures will be in the 60s and 70s for afternoon highs, but we’re not going to say goodbye to summer entirely. Warmer air returns later this week.
