SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- We’ll be dealing with some hit and miss flurries throughout the day and into tonight, but don’t expect any snow accumulation to come from this. Cloud cover will build in overnight tonight leaving us with lows in the single digits below zero for many thanks to the clouds sticking around.

Heading into Wednesday, expect more cloud cover than sunshine. We’ll see a few peaks of sunshine throughout the day, but there will be more clouds overall. Wednesday night and into Thursday is when we’ll see our next chance for snowfall to move through. Accumulations will be on the light side as we track two separate systems. Most of the accumulation will stay well south of I-90 and in extreme western South Dakota.

The second round of light snow will move through Thursday night and into Friday morning and this one is beginning to take more of a southerly path which as a result will shift the higher snow further to our south. With these two systems passing by, dangerous cold will be settling in just in time for the weekend.

This weekend we’ll have morning lows in the teens below zero along with wind chills in the 20′s to even some 30′s below zero in northern South Dakota. Highs won’t get above 0 for much of eastern South Dakota throughout the weekend. While it’s going to be quiet, if you do plan on being outdoors, make sure to have layers because frostbite won’t take long to settle in.
