Changes to the Snow Chances

Forecast models still provide some uncertainty as to the location of snow bands development and show a more prolonged snow chance event.


The current thinking this Sunday morning looks like a band of snow will develop later this afternoon in northwest, South Dakota, and continue to expand eastward through the overnight night and into Monday. Heavy snow amounts are possible, mainly around the North Dakota/South Dakota border.



By Monday night, another round of moderate snow will be possible from the southwest corner of the state up towards the northeast. This will bring a general three to six inches of snow for western and northern areas of South Dakota.


On Tuesday, continued chances of snow showers will come to an end from western, South Dakota to the east by Tuesday afternoon and evening hours. The final snowfall amounts have the heaviest amounts in the far northeast, South Dakota where a foot of snow will be possible.
