A Snowy Morning

You might want to get rollin’ a little early this morning because we’re going to have some snow for your drive to work and school.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Sioux Falls and parts of southeastern South Dakota, southwestern Minnesota and northwestern Iowa from 6 AM until noon today. About 2 to 3 inches of snow is possible in the Sioux Falls area with heavier amounts possible south and east of Sioux Falls. Parts of northwestern Iowa could get 4 to 6 or more inches of snow. Snow will end by early afternoon in Sioux Falls, gradually ending from west to east across Iowa and Minnesota throughout the afternoon.

The wind will be fairly light today, so blowing snow will not be a big issue. The exception will be central South Dakota, where gusts to between 20 and 30 mph will create areas of blowing snow at times this afternoon.

The rest of the week will be cold with on and off snow. Light snow is possible again tomorrow with another system that will have the potential to bring more measurable snow on Thursday into Friday. Stay tuned for updates!
