Who's ready for more snow? It's been a couple of days, to say the least, since we've seen snow falling across the area and Mother Nature has decided that we've had it too good for too long. She's bringing another system through the Northern Plains starting later this afternoon into the evening and when it finally moves on out... some of us could be shoveling over a half a foot of snow.
Winds are going to be out of the southeast today because we are east of an incoming low pressure system that is set to bring some of the KDLT viewing area anywhere from 3 to 8 inches of snow; the southeasterly winds are going to help bring up moisture throughout the day on Monday. Parts of the Missouri River Valley northeast towards Aberdeen could see some light mixed precipitation going into the afternoon ahead of the bulk of the snow that is set to begin to fall in the early morning hours on Tuesday and last throughout the the day. We do have several counties, mainly along and just north/south of i90, underneath a winter storm watch which will go into effect starting tonight across western/central portions of the viewing area and will begin Tuesday morning for eastern counties and last through Wednesday morning.
Temperatures on Monday are going to climb into the upper 30s to upper 40s thanks to southeasterly winds but we will see mostly cloudy skies as well as the slight chance for some light mixed precipitation across the MRV beginning in the afternoon. The south is going to remain dry however, we will see the chance for snow this evening and that is expected to last throughout the day on Tuesday into Wednesday.
Because of the fresh snow and northerly winds, we'll be a little cooler for Thursday but we will start to warm up, slowly, as we go into this weekend. There's another chance for some light flurries across the southeast on Saturday otherwise, we are going to remain quiet and see 30s return by Sunday. won't really change in the coming days. Temperatures will remain slightly warmer than average tomorrow as our next system approaches the area on Monday night into Tuesday morning. After the storm moves through on Wednesday, we will be near normal temperature-wise with quiet weather. We should have some sunshine after the system moves through on Wednesday as well. Mostly Sunny skies by next Saturday, so at least we all have that to look forward to! As always, the weather center at KDLT will keep you updated on the impending storm.
