If you dreaded today's weather, well... this week's forecast has a little bit of everything for us. It's been a pretty nasty day out there today, especially for those of us in the southeast with cold rain. Unfortunately, it will only get worse before it gets better. Tonight lows will hover right around freezing. The rain will gradually switch over to snow after midnight for the eastern portions of the viewing area. Just to the northwest of a line extending from Watertown to Chamberlain will see next to nothing. The area east of that line will see rain and snow. The forecast for where the the heaviest snowfall occurs overnight is tricky as it will largely depend on how fast the changeover from rain to snow occurs. Codington, Grant, and Deuel counties remain under a Winter Storm Warning from 10PM tonight until Noon tomorrow. These areas will likely see the heaviest snowfall with 3+" of snow and localized totals of 8" possible. The Sioux Falls and surrounding areas are under a Winter Weather Advisory from 10pm tonight until 9am tomorrow and will likely see 1+" with localized totals of 4." The snow will transition back to rain tomorrow as we warm into the mid 40s for highs. Lows will be in the low 30s tomorrow night.
We will start trending upwards with temperatures on Tuesday with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. A weak disturbance will move into Siouxland Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning bringing isolated showers. On Wednesday we start to dry out with highs in the low-to-mid 60s and partly cloudy skies. Once we get to Thursday it's smooth sailing as high pressure will dominate the region. Southerly winds will return with warm temperatures. We also have lot of sunshine on the way with clear skies Thursday and through the weekend. By Friday we will be in the 70s!
