SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- Skies will remain mostly to partly cloudy heading into tonight with a west to south-southwesterly wind at 5-15 mph. Areas of patchy fog look to once again redevelop in spots. Lows fall back into the teens with single digits in the colder spots.

Tuesday remains quiet with a partly to mostly cloudy sky but by Wednesday, skies become cloudy and a weak clipper system will spell a chance of a few light snow showers areawide. Highs will be in the 20s and 30s Tuesday with mostly 20s Wednesday. Accumulations would be minor.

Another clipper system will bring a chance of snow showers and wintry mixed precipitation Thursday evening into Friday morning. Temperatures will rise into the 30s so that’s why we’ll see the potential for rain, snow, sleet and freezing rain with this system. Accumulations look to remain minimal with this round of precipitation, but it could cause for some travel inconveniences, so be aware of that.

Another round of snow could track across the southern half of the region heading into the weekend, but the main story heading into next weekend and beyond is the significantly colder temperatures set to return. Highs are projected to be in the single digits above and below with lows well below zero. Some areas, especially in northern South Dakota may see highs below zero for several days.
