Wednesday’s Snow Totals

While it wasn’t huge, many in eastern South Dakota, southwest Minnesota, and northwest Iowa woke up to some more snow early on Wednesday. Travel conditions were a little tough in northeast South Dakota as some were on the way to work! Here’s a list of snow totals that we have received from the National Weather Service in Aberdeen and Sioux Falls! Today’s 0.9” in Sioux Falls pushes the seasonal snow total up to 48.8”, which is more than 21 inches above what the seasonal average for today’s date would be. At this point last year we had 20 inches LESS snow, and sadly the snowiest month on average is still on the way, with March bringing an average of 8.4” for the City of Sioux Falls.

But what does that mean for our winter weather here in the KDLT Viewing area?

Summer Is Gone, With The Wind

The second weekend of October coming to an end and so is this last taste of summer that we received. On both Saturday and Sunday, temperatures climbed into the 70s, 80s and 90s (thankfully we didn’t have the humidity) with plenty of sunshine. However, with the wind, it was gone yet it was the warm airmass that helped create these windy conditions.
