Wintry mix and fog overnight
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - Low clouds are expected for nearly everyone overnight. Areas of fog are likely for much of western South Dakota and parts of northeast Wyoming. A wintry mix, consisting of freezing rain/sleet/snow, is likely in northwest South Dakota and southeast Montana. Up to 3″ of snow will be possible, especially near the North Dakota line. A glaze of ice is likely, too. This will make for slippery spots tonight and into the morning hours. Use caution.
Low clouds and fog will linger for much of the area, but around the hills and areas south, skies will clear up a bit through the afternoon. A wide range of temperatures are expected for the area. In northeast Wyoming, plenty of sunshine is expected, which will lead to highs in the 50s to low 60s. In northwest South Dakota, cloudy skies will be likely all day, where highs will be in the 20s and 30s. for the rest of South Dakota, skies will clear through the afternoon and temperatures will be in the 40s to near 50°
Friday will start off with sunshine for many, but clouds move in through the day ahead of our next storm system. Highs will be in the 30s and 40s for many, but a few might get into the low 50s. Wintry precipitation will move in Friday evening for northeast Wyoming and overnight into western South Dakota.
Snow is expected to fall for much of Saturday and taper off Saturday night, though some snow showers could linger into Sunday. Accumulations will be likely for much of the area, with lesser amounts in Wyoming and northwest South Dakota and higher amounts in the southern Black Hills and southwest South Dakota. Still too early to make a call on snow totals due to the storm being off the coast, but we will likely put out numbers sometime Thursday.
Temperatures will return to the 30s on Monday with a fair amount of sunshine. Tuesday will be in the low 40s, but Wednesday will see temperatures fall back into the 30s. Data suggests snow showers return around the middle of next week, but are back and forth on when they arrive. Nothing significant is expected out of this system at this time.
