Black Hills Forecast

Snow showers are back in the Black Hills’ forecast along with temperatures slightly on the rise.

As we head through Saturday night and into Sunday morning, snow showers will develop across the area. A band will drape across the area as an area of low pressure passes just to the south, providing north and north easterly flow across western South Dakota. Temperatures will fall back to the unpleasant 0 to -10 degree range. A wind chill advisory remains in effect overnight through Sunday morning for northwestern South Dakota as wind chills fall to possibly -30.

Snow is expected to taper off about mid-morning but flurries are still possible throughout the day with totals in the 1-3″ range. Highs will remain in the single digits for much of the area.

Sunday night into Monday, a warm front is expected to work across the Black Hills with temperatures rising into the 20s overnight. By the afternoon, temperatures will fall again as a our next system moves through, dropping temperatures back to the single digits. With that, snow is expected to then move across the hills, mainly north of I-90. Snow totals will be less than 1″ for much of the area.

Off and on snow chances continue Tuesday and Wednesday with high temperatures both days returning to the mid to upper 20s. By Thursday, things start to look colder and snowier.

A strong front will work in. Winds will be between 20 to 30 mph with temperatures in the single digits to teens. Another round of snow could bring an additional 2″ to the foothills.

We look to stay below freezing into the weekend with more snow potentially on our way by Saturday.
