Snow is back for western KELOLAND today. Take a look at this shot from our Terry Peak skycam. The roads are slick and snowcovered in much of the Black Hills, so please use extra caution while driving in these areas.
This batch of rain and snow will march east today. Most areas will pick up a quarter inch or less, including Sioux Falls. The heavier moisture totals will be in the western third of KELOLAND, where over .25" is expected. Things turn drier tomorrow and warmer weather is ahead. We still see a little rain in the southeast late Friday.
Headlines for snow continue today in western KELOLAND.
If you are in search of warmer weather, we'll come close to 70 on Saturday in Sioux Falls. Keep in mind there could be showers ahead of the front Friday night in the southeast and more scattered hits of rain on Sunday.
One bright spot is on this map below. First, we are out of the woods for more rainfall in the next 10 days. However, the deepest moisture will be south of us and the most robust storm development will take place in the "clash" zone between the cool weather here and the humid, warm weather to the south.
We think the numbers will stay below normal much of next week. Average highs in Sioux Falls get close to 70 by the middle of the month, so highs in the 50s and 60s will be common.
The forecast today is certainly below normal, mainly in the 40s.
The rain and snow will end tonight and temperatures will be much colder with the snow in Rapid City.
The sun will return tomorrow and the temperatures will be warmer in the 50s and lower 60s.
We expect 60s this weekend. Remember, rain chances will be around Friday night and again on Sunday. Cooler weather is expected by day 7.
