Snow Possible This Weekend

If you are getting a little tired of the cold, I have some fantastic news for you this morning. If you have the itch to do more skiing, snowmobiling, snow fort building or snow angel making, I have great news for you, too.

First let’s talk about the January thaw. Today will be sunny and quite a bit warmer than yesterday. High temps will climb into the 40s this afternoon. Tomorrow will be even warmer with afternoon temps in the upper 40s. Some places could get close to 50 degrees tomorrow. Mild weather will stick around through Saturday, and then we are in for some big changes during the last half of the weekend.

As I mentioned yesterday, we are keeping an eye on a potential winter storm system that could bring measurable snow and wind late this weekend into early next week. While much of our KSFY coverage area will likely get some snow, our latest data is suggesting that the system will have a more significant impact on the southeastern part of our KSFY coverage area… Southeastern South Dakota, southern Minnesota, western and northern Iowa and most of Nebraska. The system is still several days away, so it’s too early to pin down the track and get specific with potential snow totals, however, be aware that there is a good chance that a winter storm will impact the region on Sunday and Monday. Stay tuned for updates… We’ll get more specific with the storm track and snow forecast over the next couple of days.

In the meantime, enjoy the 40s!
