Snow Starting Late Tonight
Updated by KSFY-TV Meteorologist Aaron Doudna on Sunday, November 29 at 8:05 AM
It'll be cloudy for our Sunday with highs in the low to mid 30s. The wind won't be a problem, out of the south and southeast, under 10 mph.
Overnight, we'll see snow start to move into southeast South Dakota, southwest Minnesota, and northwest Iowa. There is also a WINTER STORM WATCH that will go into effect overnight. The snow will continue to spread to the north and west heading into Monday morning. Most of us will see snow all day Monday, even lasting into Tuesday as well.
Right now, it looks like the heaviest snow will fall along and east of I-29. In Sioux Falls, we could see 6-8" of snow, locally up to 10". In parts of Minnesota and Iowa, we could see up to a foot of snow fall. Make sure you have an emergency preparedness kit packed and stored in your car. Remember, if you happen to get stuck somewhere, make sure you stay with your car and DO NOT leave your car looking for help.
After the snow ends Tuesday, we'll dry out. As we approach next weekend, highs will raise into the mid and upper 30s, even into the 40s for some.

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.
