Roads are still in tough shape this morning in much of northwestern and central KELOLAND. This is the early morning road report showing road closures in parts of the north central.
Today will be less windy, but still breezy. Highs will be in the teens in the east and north, with 20s in the southwest.
Tonight will be cold with lows a couple degrees either side of zero.
Tomorrow looks quiet with highs in the teesn for most and less wind. That’s a good day compared to what is coming our way!
Thursday will still feature a chance of snow, especially south of Sioux Falls. However, the main story will be the bigger storm coming our way this weekend. The amount of moisture we get will depend on how many thunderstorm develop to our south in the warm sector of the storm. We still have plenty of time to watch the track, but we think temperatures will warm enough to allow rain to fall in parts of southeastern KELOLAND. This will be mixed with freezing rain, sleet, and eventually snow. The snow chances are best north of Sioux Falls.
There will be plenty of wind behind the storm track, so be advised there will be road problems in parts of KELOLAND.
The storm track will remain active into next week as another storm heads into the plains, probably during the middle of the week.
Moisture will be plentiful the next few days. We are concerned that the moisture forecast will complicate the spring flood outlook in the northern plains, with widespread 1-2″ amounts common. We’ll continue to monitor the trends ahead.
