A Variety of Weather This Weekend

This weekend’s weather will bring a little something for everyone. Rain, snow, sunshine with highs in the 50s… It’s all possible in different places at different times throughout the weekend.

Two weather systems will impact our region this weekend, bringing a chance of rain and snow. The first system has already developed and will bring snow to northeastern South Dakota, North Dakota and much of Minnesota through tonight. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect this afternoon and tonight for parts of northeastern South Dakota, western Minnesota and eastern North Dakota. 2 to 4 inches of snow is possible in areas along and north of US Highway 212 through tonight.

Between systems the weather will actually be quite nice, especially in Sioux Falls and across the southern portions of our KSFY coverage area. The sun will make an appearance and highs will warm into the low 50s Saturday afternoon.

The second system, a cold front, will blast through Saturday night into Sunday morning. The front will bring scattered rain showers to Sioux Falls and much of eastern and southeastern South Dakota, southwestern Minnesota and northwestern Iowa. a few places could see if you scattered light snow showers as temperatures dropped to near freezing on Sunday morning.

Next week will be cooler than average with highs only reaching the mid to upper 30s on Monday and Tuesday. Yet another system could bring a quick shot of snow late Monday into Tuesday.
