Forecast: Bitterly Cold, Light Snow Possible Tonight
From KSFY Television Meteorologist Shawn Cable
Temperatures actually climbed a bit through the night, but quickly dropped just before daybreak and will not recover much during the day. Today will be mostly sunny with afternoon high temps in the single digits. Central South Dakota will be a bit warmer with highs in the mid to upper teens. The wind will be a bit gusty this morning but will decrease by early this afternoon.
A fast-moving system will bring a brief period of light snow this evening and overnight tonight. Snow will end late tonight with accumulation amounts ranging from a dusting to around an inch in some places.
Tomorrow will be mostly sunny and just slightly warmer than today. Our next system will arrive late tomorrow and bring another round of light snow to the region tomorrow night. This one will primarily impact northeastern South Dakota, but a brief shot of light snow - or even some patchy freezing drizzle - is possible just about anywhere along and east of the James Valley.
Thursday will be mostly cloudy with warmer highs in the mid 20s. Friday will be even warmer with temps climbing into the mid to upper 30s. The milder air will only hang around for about a day. Saturday and Sunday will be mostly cloudy and much colder with scattered light snow possible off and on throughout the weekend.
