From the KX Storm Center:
The first full week of October is starting off with cooler temps and it is breezy. Highs during the next couple of days are forecast to stay in the 50s. Winds will stay breezy through tomorrow and a few more changes are going to be possible.
Yesterday, a few thunderstorms became strong with one storm strengthening enough to become severe. By tomorrow morning, areas of light snow are possible. There is a low pressure system over Montana & Canada. This system will continue to move East as it breaks up. There is also an area of scattered light rain over South Dakota. SD rain is gradually moving East & North. Some of these light showers (over South Dakota) will move into southern North Dakota. No thunderstorms are expected. The low pressure system to our West will also move our way with rain/snow showers as precip starts to break up. This window for mix/rain between Midnight & Noon. Light rain/snow could impact our area West to East, through the early AM hours. With warming temps tomorrow, any mix or snow will melt and become rain as precip dries up. If we do see mix/snow, we are not looking at any accumulations. Overnight temps will fall into the 30s and even into the 20s (Tuesday Night). Add in winds that will still be breezy at times and it will feel 5-15 degrees cooler than it actually is. So, min chills will fall into the 20s during the next few days/nights.
So during the next 12-24 hours, a few light showers are in the forecast with some mix/snow possible (West) between 3am & 10am CT. It will not be for everyone and will not last long for those affected. Through the rest of the work week, high temps will stay below average for this time of the year with seasonable lows and our next chance for rain holding off until Friday/Saturday. Tomorrow, highs will be in the 40s & 50s (well below average (avg: 30s/60s) and continued moderate to strong winds will not help out at all. Wednesday through Friday will bring high temps a little closer to average and into the mid to upper 50s with a few 60s. By this weekend, our peak high temps (for the next 7 days) will be on Saturday with the return of stronger winds. Temps will cool back off Sunday & Monday.
Tonight, partly to mostly cloudy with scattered AM precip and a chance of light mix/snow (West). It will be chilly & still breezy at times. Lows in the 30s & 40s with a SW/West wind 2-12mph G20. 30% chance of rain/mix/snow.
Tuesday will start off chilly with precip fizzling out and clearing, late. Highs in the 40s & 50s with a few 60s East. West wind 5-15mph G20-25 for some. 30% chance of snow/mix/rain.
Tuesday night, continued clearing and chilly. Lows mostly in the 30s with a few 20s (West) and a few 40s (East). West wind 5-15mph G20 and calming. 10% chance of precip early.
Wednesday will be mostly sunny with a ridge of high pressure stretched over the Dakotas. Highs in the 50s & 60s (East) with a West/SW wind 5-15mph G20.
Wednesday night, mostly clear and chilly with light winds. Lows in the 30s with a few 40s and a SW/West wind 2-10mph.
