The Snow Machine Is Cranking Back Up!

2/21/2019 | From KSFY Television Meteorologist Shawn Cable


Our next chance of snow will kick in tonight and continue through Friday and into Friday night. Around 2 to 4 inches of snow will be possible across much of the region with bands of slightly heavier snowfall amounts of up to 5 inches possible along and west of the James River. Once again, wind will not be a big issue with this system.

A second, more significant and much more powerful winter storm system will impact the upper midwest on Saturday and Saturday night into Sunday. As of now, all of our data is suggesting that this system will track just to our east with the primary impact being felt across central and eastern Iowa, eastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Snowfall amounts of 6 inches to a foot or more will be possible in these areas. That said, this storm will clip the extreme Southeastern South Dakota, Southwestern Minnesota and especially the Northwestern Iowa portions of our KSFY coverage area. As of right now, snowfall in the Sioux Falls area should be limited to around 2 to 3 inches with heavier snow likely further east into Iowa and Minnesota. In addition to snow, there could also be areas of freezing drizzle and even a little rain mixed with the snow.

It has been a while, but the wind WILL be an issue with this system. Strong wind gusts to between 25 and 40 mph are likely across our entire region late Saturday and Sunday. This will create areas of blowing snow that will reduce visibility at times.

Stay tuned for updates on the Saturday/Sunday system. There is still potential for this system to shift west, which would mean a more significant impact for our area. We will be watching development closely and will keep updates coming as we head toward the weekend.

We are watching yet another system that could bring more measurable snow on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Again, stay tuned for updates.
