Cold With a Little More Light Snow

Give yourself plenty of time to get where you’re going this morning. The snow has ended in most places, but roads and sidewalks are snow-covered and slippery. Snowfall amounts range from between 3 and 5 inches with a few locations reporting a bit more and others reporting a bit less. The official total at Sioux Falls Regional Airport will end up being right around 3 inches.  

Today will be mostly cloudy with another round of snow possible across central and southern South Dakota this afternoon. Amounts will range from about an inch or so in Pierre, Murdo, Gregory and Chamberlain to a couple of inches in Winner, Mission and White River. Some light snow is possible in Sioux Falls late this afternoon into this evening, but accumulation will be light across the metro area.

The rest of the weekend will be dry and cold. Highs will only reach the single digits to low teens today. By tomorrow morning, temperatures will drop to around 6 below zero in Sioux Falls to near 15 below zero across much of northern South Dakota. High temps will be stuck in the teens tomorrow, warming to the 20s by Sunday.

Some places could get a little light snow on Monday. Temps will warm a bit next week. Highs will stay in the teens to low 20s on Monday and Tuesday and then climb into the 30s by Wednesday.
