KSFY SEVERE WEATHER CENTER
Light Snow and Another Arctic Blast
Updated by KSFY Meteorologist Shawn Cable on Tuesday, December 10 at 7:02 AM
We are off to a breezy start this morning. The wind is causing blowing snow and ground drifting in rural areas. The wind will gradually decrease by mid morning.
The sun will shine for a while this morning but it won't last long. Clouds will increase from northwest to southeast today and light snow is possible late this afternoon into tonight. Most places will get somewhere between a dusting and an inch of light, powdery snow.
Another blast of cold, Arctic air will force its way in tonight. By tomorrow morning, temperatures will drop to near 10 below zero in Sioux Falls and to near 20 below across northern South Dakota. High temps will only reach the lower single digits tomorrow.
After tomorrow, we get a brief break from the cold. On Thursday and Friday, highs will be in the 20s and morning lows will actually be ABOVE zero. While that sounds nice, it is still well below our average high of 30 degrees. We will cool back down by the weekend. On Saturday and Sunday highs will be in the upper single digits and lows will drop back below zero, with a chance of light snow on Saturday.
