Saturday Night Snow Totals

Bookmark and Share

As we go into the second half of the weekend, we are already beginning to see some snow in our region. However, the majority of this will remain confined to areas west river and south of Interstate 90. Here’s a look at a radar screen grab taken Saturday night showing a band of moderate snowfall from the Gregory area westward through Todd and Mellette Counties, then along the Interstate 90 corridor through Wall and Rapid City.

As always, you can visit www.safetravelusa.com/sd for the most up-to-date SD-DOT travel cameras. However, here is a look at what roads were looking like Saturday evening around 10:30 p.m. near the towns of Witten and Mission in south central South Dakota.

Here’s a look at the estimated snowfall totals from areas in Tripp, Todd, and Mellette Counties as of 11 p.m. Saturday night. While these totals are somewhat significant, this area of snowfall isn’t necessarily part of the main system that will be passing through our area Sunday night into Monday.

Our next system is just now coming off the eastern slopes of the Rockies in Montana. Overnight Saturday into Sunday, this batch of snowfall will dissipate as it shifts southeastward into Nebraska. We can’t rule out the possibility of some flurries during the overnight hours, but the majority of our moisture will hold off until later in the day Sunday.

In fact, Sunday is actually looking just a little bit warmer as winds will be breezy out of the south and southeast ahead of the cold front. We will see mostly cloudy skies throughout the day.

These southeasterly winds will bring just enough moisture and warm air to give areas west of the James River Valley a chance of seeing light rain for the late afternoon Sunday. Some of this may fall as a mixture of rain and snow for areas along and north of the North Dakota border.

As we go into the overnight hours, we will see this moisture ahead of the cold front move into parts of the east. As it does, most of it will fall as snow in NW Iowa and SW Minnesota while quite a bit of it will begin as rain before switching to snow in E South Dakota.

It shouldn’t last very long, however. Notice that our Futurecast has the majority of the moisture exiting our area very quickly Monday morning. I can’t rule out the possibility of some snow flurries lingering behind in the early afternoon.

For the rest of Monday, cooler temperatures and windy conditions will be the main story before temperatures gradually warm into the mid 30s going into the middle of the week. Be sure to stay tuned to KDLT and KDLT.com for the most up-to-date information.
