Daily Forecast

From Meteorologist Amanda Wekesser:

Winter Storm Late Sunday to Monday!

Most of our accumulations will occur Sunday night to Monday morning. Snow will begin to taper off late Monday night into Tuesday morning. In Rapid City, 8" to 12" looks possible on the storm's current track. Parts of the Black Hills will top 12", but the northern plains will see much less, mainly 2"-4".

With this snow, arctic air will sink in leaving us well below average, just single digit temps on Monday and Tuesday. A few mornings will be below zero to start the week.

The Monday commute will likely be treacherous - your KOTA Weather Team will keep you updated!
