Good morning! An active weather pattern remains in place across KELOLAND areas of rain and snow tracking through the region.
Rain totals through 6:30 CDT show several areas between .50″ and 1″ of rain. We’ve had locally heavier totals just west and south of Brookings and we’ll be adding to these numbers today.
Snow has been the story in the Black Hills. No travel advisories have been posted for the areas shaded in red on this map as of early this morning.
Snow reports between 6 and 12″ are quite common. Nemo reports 15″ of fresh snow and over 13″ fell just west of Hot Springs.
Futurecast shows more rain moving into KELOLAND the next couple of days. We see a healthy batch of rain tonight in northern IA and southern MN moving back to the west. This means a good chances of showers in Sioux Falls on Thursday.
