The 7 am wind gusts have been stronger in south central KELOLAND, gusting near 40mph as of 7am in Winner. Expect the winds to get stronger in Sioux Falls through late morning.
Futurecast remains dry for most areas until Saturday. We expect snow to develop Saturday night into Sunday for parts of eastern KELOLAND. It’s a bit early to throw out specific numbers, but a “nuisance” type snow is more likely in KELOLAND, with the more significant accumulations may stay to our south again in central Iowa.
