Dorrell’s PM Forecast Update Monday 1/2


From the KX News Dakota Storm Center:

Today we have been seeing cloudy skies with widespread snow stretched across the state. There is a low pressure system over the Dakotas with a broad area of snow stretched north into Southern Canada. As of this afternoon, we have received several reports of 4″-7″ with more snow on the way. There is a series of Winter Weather Alerts issued for our area, including a Winter Storm Warning across most of the state that will remain in effect through Noon tomorrow. Elsewhere a Winter Weather Advisory will expire the same time.
Widespread snow will continue this evening with tapering snow chances tonight. Most of the accumulating snow will wrap up before Midnight with a few lingering flurries/light snow showers still on radar through tomorrow morning. In the wake of this system, expect some clearing with in & out clouds through Tuesday & Wednesday. Also, temps will fall considerably. Lows will dip into the negative teens and well below zero. There will be a light to moderate & gusty wind that will make it feel much colder. Chills in the -20s & -30s are expected through the next couple of nights. With temps/chills in this dangerously cold range, frostbite will be possible within 30 mins at times. Bundle up and stay safe on the roads as well. Through the rest of the 7day planner temps will not warm up much until the beginning of the work week and snow chances will stay low, for the most part.
Through the next couple of days, stay with KX News on-air, online and through social media for more forecast updates. Make sure you put a winter survival kit into your vehicles. Join us tonight at 5, 6 & 10pm and tomorrow morning for Good Day Dakota. We will have more details &  more info on road conditions and temp/chill expectations. Most importantly (during & after this event) make sure you, your family, your pets and your neighbors stay safe. 

Tonight will bring tapering snow chances with continued cloudy skies. Lows will fall below zero and into the negative teens. Winds will swing around to the NW at 10-20mph G35 and chills in the negative teens and negative 20s. 60% chance of snow with 1″-4″ possible. Frostbite will be possible to exposed areas of skin within 30 mins, for some.
Tuesday, expect clearing skies becoming mostly to partly cloudy with in & out cover and it will be cold. Highs will be on either side of zero with a NW wind 10-20mph and chills in the negative teens & -20s.
Tuesday night, in & out clouds and bitterly cold. Lows in the negative teens with a West wind 5-15mph and chills in the -20s & -30s. Frostbite will be possible to exposed areas of skin within 30 mins.
Wednesday will bring partly to mostly cloudy skies with in & out cover and still cold. Highs near zero with a W/NW wind 10-20mph G30 and chills in the -teens & -20s. 
Wednesday night, mostly cloudy skies and cold with a few flurries possible. Lows well below zero and into the -teens with a NW/W wind 5-15mph G20 and chills in the -20s & -30s.
