First Alert Weather Forecast
Sunday Temperatures Take A Brief Step Back
2/23/2020 | From First Alert Weather Center Meteorologist Sam GabrielliAbove normal high temperatures will once again stick around for Sunday, leaving us in the 30s and 40s once again to close out the weekend. The catch with Sunday's weather however? More of a light northerly breeze is forecast as opposed to Saturday's light south wind.
As we rewind from the weekend and head into the coming work week, temperatures will take a step back and there will be a chance for some light rain and light snow in spots Monday into Tuesday. We will be sandwiched between two systems as one develops in the Central Plains and another one drifts in from the northwest. Snow accumulation is still up in the air as we gather more details over the next 24 to 48 hours, but the best chance for 1-3 inches if not more is suggested to be along the Missouri Valley as well as north central South Dakota.
Another blast of colder than average temperatures moves into the picture as we get into the middle portion of this week. Expect low temperatures in the single digits and high temperatures in the teens and 20s at that time. Our pattern will change to more of a dry and mild one to wrap up the work week!
Don't panic yet because another big warm up is in store for us for the final hours of next week and right on into the weekend! High temperatures at that time will reach average value or greater for the first weekend of March. We are definitely on the home stretch of winter when it comes to temperatures because average temperatures warm the greatest in the month of March compared to the rest of the year.
