Winter weather advisories are in effect for the southeast counties of KELOLAND. These were issued for a brief period of freezing drizzle and icing before switching over to snow. You can find the latest here.
Central and west SD will see the skies clear out tonight although a brief hit of light snow or flurries is possible around the northern Black Hills. The east will see passing snow tonight with the greatest amounts still expected in SW MN and NW IA. Eastern SD is in the one to two inch range while the other side of border in MN and IA could get an inch or two more. Overnight lows are in the single digits to teens.
The snowfall will come to an end early tomorrow morning but northwest winds will pick up which could blow around some of that fresh snow. Skies in the afternoon should be sunny to mostly sunny as clouds clear from west to east. Temps will top out in the 20s to near 30 in the west, teens and 20s in central and east KELOLAND.
Wednesday will be interesting. A pocket of warm air will build over the Midwest late Tuesday into Wednesday which would warm Wednesday afternoon temperatures to the teens and 20s for eastern and central KELOLAND and the west would top out in the 30s to 40s! But shortly after that pocket of warm air moves in, cold air will push in from the north. The timing of that cold air would affect just how warm Wednesday gets so don’t be surprised if Wednesday’s forecasted highs change significantly between now and Wednesday morning.
After that cold air rushes in, we’ll see highs drop back to the single digits and teens the rest of the 7 day forecast. And as we swap out these air masses, we’ll see the chances for light snow go up. Right now, Thursday into Friday morning is the next chance for snow in KELOLAND and the weekend could see another round of snow.
