Thanksgiving Light Snow

Updated by KSFY-TV Meteorologist Phil Schreck on Wednesday, November 25 at 10:15 PM

Get ready for a little snow on Thanksgiving day. We're looking for 1-2" in the Sioux Falls area with lesser amounts to the north. Meanwhile, 2-4" are possible from Yankton, SD to Sioux Center, IA and Jackson, MN. We may be dealing with a little blowing snow thanks to a north wind at 15-20 mph.

Further to the south and east there's going to be a big problem with freezing rain. So, if you're heading anywhere south of Sioux City, IA, you'll encounter very slick conditions on Thursday.

Sunshine returns on Friday with highs in the upper 20s to lower 30s but the wind, thankfully, will be on the light side. It'll be clear to partly cloudy and a bit warmer on Saturday before a chance for snow returns Sunday night and Monday.

New SPC Severe Risk Category Definitions

Updated: 04/02/2015 - 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.
