Are you sick of the wind? Yeah, me too. Friday will still be cold, highs in the single-digits to teens in the southeast, but the winds will be pretty light. All week I have been talking winds 30-60 mph but today they will be in the 5-15 mph range. That means wind chill temps will be better than what we have seen in the past couple of days.
We are expecting mostly cloudy skies today, a few light snow showers are possible along the SD/NE border but the main push of snowfall will arrive tomorrow. By lunchtime Saturday, a band of snow looks to develop along the MRV and slide east throughout the daylight hours. The heaviest accumulation is expected across northern Iowa and southern Minnesota but eastern South Dakota could see some spots pick up 3-5” of snow.
That system moves out Sunday and we will be left with temps in the teens for the end of the weekend. Next week we are anticipating a return of the arctic air as a chunk of it breaks loose and floats on down into the Dakotas through next Wednesday. It does look like temps will tick upward a bit for the end of next week with highs back in the double-digits.
