Here is an update on the snowstorm that we have been watching over the last several days. Looks like snow will develop after midnight Thursday through central and eastern South Dakota and will begin moving east from there. It looks like many of us will get at least a little bit of snow with maybe the exception of the far north and the far south. But we are watching some recent developments in some of the forecasting models hinting at a little further north track, which would stick the heaviest band of snow from about Brookings south and eastward through Pipestone and Worthington Minnesota as well as a small chunk of northwest Iowa. But that band could still end up a little further south to include Sioux Falls and much of northwest Iowa. Let me show you…
The following several images are from a few different models and model runs. This will hopefully give you enough details to make your own conclusions.
You can see very well for yourself that it looks like most of us will end up with at least a little accumulation, but trying to find the location of the heaviest band is proving to be tough. So, the next image is our futurecast, which is another computer model in itself. It shows amounts for select cities. Then what I did, is circled the area that has the best chance of seeing some of the heavier accumulations which are 4 or 5 inches.
