Daily Forecast

From Meteorologist Eric Gardner:

Cooler Wednesday, Snow and Colder Thursday!

Cooler temperatures can be expected today with variably cloudy skies. No significant precipitation is expected in KOTA Territory today.

A strong upper level storm system will track from the northern Rockies into the plains tonight and Thursday. Widespread snow will develop, generally along and south of Interstate 90 late tonight and Thursday, into Thursday night. The heaviest snowfall is expected along the South Dakota / Nebraska border, where up to 8" could fall. In Rapid City, 2" to 4 " will be possible, with locally higher amounts. Over the northern plains, little if any snow accumulation is expected.

The weekend will be colder with a few flurries still possible from time to time.
