Another Weekend Storm Upon Us

Bookmark and Share

After this week’s major spring storm, we could all use a little sunshine and warm air—right? Well, it finally looks like we’re finally going to warm up a bit and possibly melt some of this snow and ice. Unfortunately, these warmer temperatures are only going to be relative to what we have been seeing over the past few days rather than what is average. Believe it or not, it is April and our highs should actually be in the mid to upper 50s. Here’s a look at the temperature trends over the past few days. It probably seems like an eternity ago that we were seeing temperatures in the 50s!

Naturally, for those of us who are tired of winter; this stretch of temperatures below average is the last thing we want to see. However, when it comes with the moisture; we can’t complain—especially after the devastating drought we’ve experienced. Sure, we would have rather had it fall as liquid or even just as snow instead of freezing rain. Then again, moisture is moisture. For the first time in months, we are finally seeing some improvements when it comes to the drought situation. We still have a long way to go, but this is certainly good news to farmers as we go into the growing season of 2013.

Now, it’s time to look forward in time to see when the next chances of rain and/or snow will come around. Fortunately, we don’t have to look too far. I’m sure we’d rather see it fall in the form of rain, but not all of us will get it that way. It does look like parts of the north will see this fall as snow or even freezing rain as early as Saturday night and Sunday morning.

In fact, we’re catching the southern end of a system that may bring quite a bit of snowfall for those in North Dakota. Areas along and north of US Highway 12 from Milbank to Mobridge will likely see the southern edge of this while areas just south of US Highway 12 may pick up a little bit of freezing rain. Either way, it does look like there is quite a bit of moisture with this system as well. It doesn’t look to be nearly as intense as this previous storm, but it does look like it may bring some more much needed rainfall to much of our region.

Here’s a look at our Futurecast Snowfall and Rainfall as of Friday evening.

Of course, we’ll have more details about this system on KDLT News this weekend. As of Friday evening, however; keep in mind that there are Winter Storm Watches in effect for areas along US Highway 12 and north through the state of North Dakota. This watch includes Mobridge, Aberdeen, Sisseton, and Milbank and areas in between. Stay tuned to KDLT and KDLT.com for more updates on this weekend’s storm. Until then, stay warm!
