It's been a cool and sunny day across much of the region. Tonight we'll see clouds increase from the south. Central South Dakota may see some light snow through the evening, then staying cloudy but dry overnight. Overnight lows will drop into the upper teensto low 20s under mostly cloudy skies.
We'll stay dry, but cloudy through the day on Sunday. Highs will top out in the low to mid 30s. Sunday night is when our weather begins to turn. Late Sunday night/early Monday morning is when light snow will begin to fall.
The Monday morning commute will be a snowy one. Snow continues to spread northward throughout the day and continue through Tuesday. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for the southeast/tri-state where, as of right now, could see 6-10" of snow. Remember, this is just a preliminary forecast, location and the amount of snow may change come Monday. We'll keep you informed with the most update information.
After Tuesday, we'll be dry through the beginning of next weekend. Highs will be in the low to mid 30s,to the north and east, close to 40 in central SD.

New SPC Severe Risk Category Definitions
- About 6 months ago the Storm Prediction Center changed the way they categorize severe weather risk. Here are the official definitions of the new categories:
Cool Days, Foggy Nights
The sun will be out again today and that will help warm us into the upper 30s to low 40s by this afternoon. That, of course, means that there will be more melting and more moisture evaporating into the air. As temperatures drop tonight, that moisture will condense into fog and as temperatures drop below freezing that fog will frost the roads.
If you're traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, expect light snow and slippery roads late Wednesday afternoon, Wednesday night and Thursday. There will likely be fog through most of the day Wednesday, with light freezing drizzle and light snow Wednesday evening and night. Light snow will continue through much of Thanksgiving Day.
