Winter Just Won't End

Bookmark and Share

Here we snow again… another blast of wintry weather some 6 weeks into the official start of spring and now transitioning into what’s typically a mild month.  Snow is pretty common in the month of April across the northern High Plains with some of the largest snow storms in history coming during the month.  But snow is far less common in May with snow occurring just a handful of times in many cases.  For Sioux Falls, the largest snow accumulation ever is 3 inches set back during World War 2 in 1944.  It’s not unheard of to get a few flakes in the first couple weeks of May, but it’s far less common to get the snow to stick.  This could be the first year in over 30 that we have seen accumulating snow in the month of May.  But snow isn’t the only object of our forecast, just probably the most dreaded.  Plenty of rain will make its return across the southeast and hopefully adding moisture to a dry but improving landscape.

Here is a look at the precipitation forecast for the next 48 hours, through Thursday evening.  The first two images show the prediction by futurecast with both rain and snow.  The last shows the amount of liquid precipitation expected for the entire country as forecasted by the Weather Prediction Center.  Stay dry!
