Watches Up, Snow Coming


After a spring like weekend, winter returns for the start of the work week.  A strong upper level storm system will push into the region by later tonight and slowly move out by Tuesday.  Chances of snow will be found across the state with the best risk of accumulating snow across the southwest and the northern, Black Hills.

Total snowfall amounts will be the heaviest across the northern Black Hills, where the area may see six to ten inches of snow. Winter Storm Watches are in effect from Monday morning through Tuesday for the area.  For additional information, please visit our Weather Alerts page.
Snow amounts will be lower across the plains where the numbers look to remain under four inches. Across the east, amounts will be even lower than the west, mainly staying under three inches. The northeast, this time around, looks to receive the smallest amounts with the forecast calling for snow to remaining under one inch.
Besides snow chances on Monday and Tuesday, strong winds are forecast to develop on Tuesday, which could create areas of blowing snow, especially across the west.
