Slick roads will be a distinct possibility in the Black Hills Region going into Tuesday morning, with some areas receiving light accumulations.
- A distinct band of mixed precipitation is making its way from Southwest South Dakota and pushing its way Northeast this morning, heading for the Eastern foothills and areas of the South Dakota Plains.
- Temperatures will slightly increase as we approach this afternoon, but we should expected continued mixed of rain and snow across the area through Tuesday afternoon and evening.
- As far as this morning and afternoon goes, the biggest impacts will be a few slick roads in the higher elevations and possible areas of low visibility with some of the more rigorous snow bands.
- Otherwise, you’ll be watching snowflakes fall outside on and off with little interruption to your daily routine.
- As we approach this afternoon and evening, conditions will change to a mixture of rain, sleet, snow and possibly freezing drizzle in some spots.
- This is where we could run into some slick travel, and should use caution if you have travel plans tonight into Tuesday morning.
- Tuesday morning will feature leftover snow/rain/freezing drizzle spots before turning back to mostly rain by the afternoon with warming temperatures.
- Breezy conditions will also begin to pick up from the South and Southeast towards Tuesday morning.
- Warmer temperatures will be attempting to push into the region from the Southwest towards Tuesday afternoon.
