Our second low pressure system is finally pushing through the forecast area and as it moves on out, it's going to be taking the snow with it. Do expect the chance for some light snow through the late morning across the northeast but, for the most part, the snow chances will be ending as we go into the rest of your Tuesday. So with the snow chances ending today, you may be asking, "is Winter finally going to end?" the answer to that question is no as parts of the the Sioux Empire could see another round of somewhat heavy snow into the end of this week! Also remember, March does tend to be our snowiest month of the year.
As I said, our second low pressure system is on its way out and, in its place, a high pressure system will be moving in which means that our skies are going to be clearing out throughout the day. From west to east not only will we see clearing skies but we'll also see our winter storm warnings as well as winter weather advisories expire from west to east as well, starting in the morning hours across our western counties. An additional half an inch or so could be picked up during the mid/late morning hours as this snow wraps up. As the high pressure system moves in, not only will our skies open up... but our temperatures, along with our wind chills, will also drop. Tonight we are expecting some of our wind chill values to get as low as 30 degrees below zero.
Even though the area of high pressure will remain overhead going into the rest of the week, the southeast especially will see the chance for snow returning as we go into later parts of this week; southerly winds on Wednesday mean that more moisture will move northwards and we'll start to see the chance for snow showers return as early as Thursday. That round of snow could potentially be heavier with upwards of an additional two inches of snow accumulating before heading into the weekend as well as ahead of light snow on Friday and Saturday. The late week snow doesn't look to be widespread and will primarily be across eastern/southeastern portions of the forecast area.
Highs on Tuesday are going to climb into the single digits as well as teens with low twenties possible across the southeast. Northwesterly winds will be taking over and remain light throughout the day with the chance for snow across the east mainly through the morning hours.
