First Alert Weather Forecast
Light Snow Tonight
2/27/2020 | From First Alert Weather Center Meteorologist Tyler RoneyWe're tracking some light snow that will be moving through the area tonight and into Friday morning. Accumulations will be light and most of us will only see a half inch or less. Along the James River we could see some locations that wind up seeing closer to an inch, but that would be very isolated. We'll be in the mid 20's for Friday morning and we could see some patchy fog once again especially in areas north of Sioux Falls. More cloud cover is on the way for Friday for the eastern half of the viewing area. This will result in temperatures only getting into the 30's for highs. As you go west, places like Pierre will see the sunshine return and as a result get back into the upper 40's!
The weekend is still looking incredible across the region. We'll see sunshine return throughout the day for everyone! Highs will range from around 50 west to the upper 30's north to the upper 40's south and east. Sunday there will be more cloud cover building in, but we'll stay dry and overall still be pretty mild. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Sunday but only by a few degrees. We're tracking the chance for some light snow late Sunday night and into Monday mainly in areas along and south of I-90. This doesn't look to be too impressive in terms of producing accumulation or causing too many travel problems. Highs will begin to fall to the 30's for highs on Monday, but we'll be back in the 40's again by Tuesday.
We're tracking another chance for some light snow on Wednesday and this doesn't look impressive at the moment either. While our temperatures will be at and just above normal, some slightly cooler air will build in for the middle of the week and then eventually get even cooler by the end of next weekend. We should be staying dry overall with below normal precipitation and temperatures most of the next 10 days at or just above normal which should help slowly melt more of that snow pack at a good pace.
