After the rain comes to an end this afternoon, clouds will begin to thin out this evening and we should really see some clearing in eastern KELOLAND overnight. But as that is happening, another round of rain will begin to move into southwestern South Dakota. Temperatures tonight will bottom out in the 30s again. Frosty conditions are possible tonight, so a Freeze Warning and Frost Advisory has been issued.
That next round of rain will continue to move into KELOLAND tomorrow. High temperatures will be below-normal again with highs in the 30s in the west, to 40s and 50s in central and east KELOLAND. Again, folks around the Black Hills may get a mix of rain and snow with significant accumulating snow likely Monday night. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for the Black Hills for over 6 inches of heavy, wet snow possible.
The rain will be widespread across the area Monday night and will last through Wednesday morning. Total rainfall amounts will be significant with the southern and western counties getting another one to two inches of rain with isolated amounts up to three inches. The eastern and northeastern counties look to get about an inch to an inch and a half. Highs on Tuesday and Wednesday will still be below normal, reaching the 50s to 60s for most of the area but the west will be a little cooler.
Temperatures look to warm to the 60s to near 70 by next weekend. Another round of light rain is possible Thursday and Thursday night. Rain amounts will range from about a quarter to three-quarters of an inch.
