SIOUX FALLS, SD (Dakota News Now) – We have a Snow Warning and Winter Weather Warning in effect across the region starting at 6:00 today and continuing into tomorrow. As the rain turns to snow, the wind picks up and can cause reduced visibility. The heaviest snowfall will be in the Northeast, with 3 to 6 inches of snow expected and 55 mph winds.
Our last storm system will move through Valentine’s Day. Temperatures will be mild this morning with most of us in the upper 30s and low 40s, but temperatures will drop in the afternoon as winds shift to the northwest. Winds will be 40 to 55 mph later today. Rain is likely in southeastern parts of the area and we could get some rain in the northwest before everything turns to snow this evening and tonight. Winds will cause blowing snow and reduced visibility, so travel tonight will not be good at all. The heaviest snow is expected in northeastern South Dakota, where we could see 3 to 6 inches of snow. Around Sioux Falls we could see 1 to 2 inches of fresh snow.
Cold air flows behind this system. We stay in the teens and 20s for the highs on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and for some of us, Fridays. But we should warm up over the weekend with highs in the 30s and 40s.
