Snow had already pushed into the area leading to deteriorating road conditions across the Sioux Empire. Here’s a look at how much snow we should expect by Tuesday afternoon.
Another round of snow will be moving into the Sioux Empire. Snow totals could be upwards of 10″ in some spots, but it’s all going to depend on where this low moves.
Plenty of snow fell across the Sioux Empire and the rest of South Dakota. Here’s a list of the totals we have received!
We Will NOT See 20.5 Inches of Snow By Christmas
Check the Source Before you Hit the Share Button
Throughout the last couple of hours I’ve been answering questions about a claim that a local Facebook page has made saying that we will see nearly 21 inches of snow by Christmas Day. Is it true? Absolutely not. While it is likely that we will see a White Christmas, the likelihood of receiving 20.5 inches of snow by that date is highly unlikely.
November Recap: Record Breaking – A Tale of two Halves
A Warm then Snowy Month Comes to a Close
Several weather records were broken during the month of November. From the very warm start to the snowy end, we recap the month and where it stands in history.
Starting Sunday night, a low pressure system is expected to make its way out of the southwest and travel northeast; as it does, it’s going to bring the Sioux Empire a significant amount of snow that is expected to last through Tuesday evening. Some places could pick up over 10″ of snow.
Plenty of snow fell across the area on Friday bringing places of southeast South Dakota over a foot of snow. Here are some of those snow totals.
Record El Niño Possible, What It Means for Us
NOAA Expects A Very Strong El Niño, How Does That Affect Our Winter Weather?
About three months ago, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, also known as NOAA, announced that the world could be in for one of the strongest El Niño events recorded in history and that this even would rival that of the strongest El Niño ever recorded from 1997-1998. But what does that mean for our winter weather here in the KDLT Viewing area?
October has come and gone and for many it was quite warm. Temperatures across the area were well above average, and a few of us even managed to hit 90° during the course of a month who’s average temperature is usually in the upper 40s when you take into account the high and low temperature of all 31 days.
The El Nino that is developing in the Pacific is set to be one of the strongest on record, with sea surface temperatures well above where they should be for this time of year. While this is taking place in the Pacific, its effects are going to be felt here in the Northern Plains, the rest of the United State and the world.
The second weekend of October coming to an end and so is this last taste of summer that we received. On both Saturday and Sunday, temperatures climbed into the 70s, 80s and 90s (thankfully we didn’t have the humidity) with plenty of sunshine. However, with the wind, it was gone yet it was the warm airmass that helped create these windy conditions.
It’s part of three supermoons that will be seen this Fall; last night was a rare event where the moon was not only a supermoon but also went through a lunar eclipse. It was an event that hasn’t been seen in 33 years and it won’t be seen again until 2033.
After several days of being underneath a very tropical feeling airmass, the KDLT viewing area is starting to see some relief, a break, from the dog days of summer. We’ll start to see temperatures drop from the 80s to mid 60s for highs!
Rain Totals from Thursday Night’s Flooding
Rainfall Rates of 14 inches per hour Were Recorded!
A list of rain totals from Thursday’s heavy rain. Details here!
A low pressure system moved through the region yesterday, putting the eastern portion of the KDLT viewing area under the gun for a potentially severe weather afternoon. However, the severe weather threat was eliminated by cloud cover and as we go into later parts of next week, the low will become cut-off which means we’re going to be under plenty of quiet skies.
Heavy rains that fell across the Sioux Empire Sunday night caused roads to flood which then brought the risk of hydroplaning to those driving. With the chance of rain sticking around through the first half of next week, do you know what to do if you’re caught hydroplaning?
Look to the Skies: Perseid Meteor Shower Underway!
The Weeklong Lightshow Begins Early Tuesday Morning
The annual show of space lights begins tonight across the Northern Hemisphere as the Perseid Meteor will be visible amongst the stars tonight. Details Here:
With the passing of a cold front, the jetstream will start to move into a trough setup in which cooler than usual air will be over the region resulting in high temperatures in the mid to upper 70s for a couple of days.
A Rare Blue Moon Tonight!
NEXT ONE WONT BE UNTIL 2018!
We are in for something special and rare tonight/early Friday and the next time this will happen wont be until 2018!
After an active Saturday night, the atmosphere is gearing up for another round of severe weather with portions of the KDLT viewing area in an enhanced risk for Monday afternoon and evening.
