Wednesday testing our patience: Snowy hills, rainy plains

Once we get through Wednesday, sunshine and warmth will move into the region.

The good news is we get a little break today, but Wednesday will throw what it can at us before relief is on the way. Let’s break it down.

  • A few snow/rain showers sill strafe areas Northeast of the Black Hills today, but little impacts are expected from this.
  • Temperatures could reach the low 50’s in some areas, with partly cloudy skies. even a few mid to high 50’s as you go further South.
  • Clouds move in this evening, and chances of precipitation increase after midnight.

  • Things hold steady until about Wednesday morning, when a mix of rain and snow is expected to move through the region.
  • Most of the snow will remain in the higher elevations, but don’t be surprised by snow showers in Rapid City as well.
  • Accumulations are expected to be light, but could have a few heavy spots in Custer County particularly.
  • Breezy conditions will pick up towards Wednesday afternoon and evening from the Southeast

  • Any snow that does fall outside of the hills will have a hard time sticking, but could cause some slick conditions.
  • Heavier accumulations look to occur between Hot Springs and Hill City, with perhaps an inch or two near Lead and Deadwood.

  • Breezy conditions pickup towards Wednesday afternoon and evening, adding to the blustery conditions overnight
  • The good news it these winds will be bringing warmer, drier air to our region through Thursday morning and afternoon

  • The later portion of this weeks improves wonderfully, with a few areas reaching 70° between Friday and Saturday
  • A brief cooldown could take place Sunday going into Monday, but the details are a little fuzzy, the timing and track of some long range systems will effect those temperatures going into next week.
