Forecast: Warmer but Breezy Today
From First Alert Weather Center Meteorologist Aaron Doudna
It's going to be warmer today than it has been lately, and we should continue melting off some of that snow we still have around! Highs will range from the low to mid 20s in the east to the 40s in central South Dakota. The one issue with today will be the wind. We could see wind gusts around 35 mph later this afternoon.
Overnight, we'll see a few flurries move into southeastern parts of the region. There may be a brief moment of a little mixed precipitation. Overall, I'm not expecting a lot to fall tonight. Little to no accumulation is expected. The clouds will stick around for Wednesday, however. Despite the cloudy conditions, we should see some much warmer temperatures. Temperatures for most of us will jump into the 30s with the 40s returning out west.
Our next chance of potentially accumulating snow will come Wednesday night into Thursday, especially in southern and eastern parts of the region. A quick-moving batch of light snow could zip through the I-90 corridor Wednesday night. A big storm system will be spinning off our east Thursday and I think it will stay just to our east. We'll probably see some flurries and light snow along and east of I-29. Overall, we may pick up an inch in some of our Minnesota and Iowa counties.
After that, it looks like it will be smooth sailing! Temperatures will warm back up into the 30s heading into the weekend with 40s hanging tight out west. We should stay dry through the weekend and into early next week before potentially seeing another quick shot of snow come our way Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.
