One More Warm Day… Winter Storm on the Way

2/22/2017 - From Meteorologist Shawn Cable: This is it... Your last chance to enjoy spring in February. Today will be mostly sunny with high temps ranging from the low 60s in Sioux Falls to the upper 50s in Pierre. Aberdeen and northern South Dakota will be cloudy with showers - even an isolated thunderstorm - this morning. Rain will change to light snow showers this afternoon. High temps will only reach the upper 40s there.

Our attention now turns to a powerful winter storm system that will impact much of our region late Thursday, Thursday night and Friday. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued by the National Weather Service for Thursday evening through Friday and includes much of southern and eastern South Dakota, northern Nebraska, northwestern Iowa, and southern Minnesota. Rain will develop tomorrow and then quickly change to snow late tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow evening. Heavy snow is likely late Thursday, Thursday night and Friday. Snowfall accumulation of 6 to 10 or more inches is possible with strong wind gusts to 30-40+ mph creating areas of blowing snow. Travel conditions will deteriorate quickly late Thursday afternoon. Snow and blowing snow will make travel difficult Thursday night, Friday and Friday night with conditions gradually improving late Friday night into Saturday morning. Stay tuned for updates on this developing winter storm.

After the storm passes, we are in for an extended stretch of cooler weather. Saturday and Sunday will be partly cloudy with high temps in the upper 20s to low 30s. Highs will stay much closer to average through most of next week and beyond.
