The end of the weekend folks and I'm sorry we couldn't have better weather! We saw thick cloud cover through the whole day today that kept our temperatures much lower than I forecast. We are starting to see the onset of our next precipitation maker tonight. Rain is falling now across southwestern portions of our viewing area. This will be switching to all snow during the overnight hours tonight. Precipitation will remain falling as snow through the day tomorrow mostly across the Missouri River Valley to kick off the work week. Snow will slowly push to the East making it to the tri state area Monday night. Snow will continue along and east of interstate 29 through the morning hours on Tuesday before finally ending late morning. Amounts of 1-2" look likely across the Sioux Empire as most of this will not be a part of the main low pressure system. This will act as more back side moisture.

Wednesday will be completely dry but we will still be dealing with some cloud cover. Seeing a little bit of sun is going to help us reach the mid to upper 40's across the area. Thursday the 50's look to return and spring will finally actually feel like it, although once again, the Sioux Empire will see plenty of clouds through the day.

Friday begins the next system we are keeping our eye on. Rain will be common through the day on Friday and depending on the track of the low, this could switch to heavier snowfall across the east. It will be a system to keep a close eye on, at this point it looks like mostly rain, but if the low tracks further south, things could get very interesting.

Snow and sleet look to continue through the morning hours on Saturday and we get a quick break in the action before round 3 of our precipitation. March has certainly been a lion so far and this month will continue to be this way. Our pattern has been active and in the next 10 days things don't look to be changing. Stay tuned for constant updates as these next couple of systems approach the Sioux Empire!
