Snow & Rain moving in: Light accumulations possible

Today will be a breezy, blustery day with rain and snow showers, but conditions look to improve

  • A mix of rain and snow will be likely in Rapid City throughout the day with breezy conditions. A waterproof windbreaker is the key here
  • A quick burst of cold air could mean the difference between no accumulations and a quick buildup of slushy roads, so just use caution.
  • 0-1″ is a reasonable estimate for Rapid City, it could very well be that we see all rain today.

  • As you go higher in elevation, the more likely you are to see a little more snow and less rain. I think 3″ will be the most anyone sees, perhaps even a 4″ mark out there somewhere.
  • Mostly rain for the plains, areas North of I-90 may see little to no precipitation at all.

  • Precipitation quickly moves out through the overnight hours, leaving us dry and cool with cloudy skies.
  • Thursday morning could feature some foggy areas, before the sun breaks through by the lunch hour.

  • Notice that by Thursday afternoon, temperatures are pushing almost 60°
  • Although most may not see 60°, high 50’s look likely and generally a nice Thursday on tap for us.

  • Conditions improve temperature wise, pushing the mid to high 60’s by Friday and Saturday.
  • A weak system could spoil the fun on Saturday, with some chances for rain showers going into Sunday
  • Sunday and Monday look relatively dry, before another system, and cooler weather look likely for the middle portion of next week.
