Possible rain by Sunday; Watch Next Week – Storm Center AM Update: Saturday, April 9


While the weekend is off to a good start, the warmer weather we will see today will be a general exception to the rule going forward.

That said, enjoy the day if you can! It will be a little windy at times, but we will still have good sunshine mixed with a few clouds throughout the afternoon. Highs will range from mid 50s to low/mid 60s.

The first of several chances of humidity will begin to move overnight, although not everyone will see anything. Still, don’t be surprised if you encounter rain showers and/or snow showers with lows falling in the 20s in the west and 30s elsewhere.

We will have another round of seasonal temperatures on Sunday, although a few areas may slip back a bit from the 60s to the 50s and 50s to the 40s in the northeast. We will also have possible showers, especially along and west of I-29.

Another decent day arrives for your Monday with temperatures in the high 50s under partly cloudy skies. This break will be rather short-lived, as our next chance for precipitation is about to arrive.

We will start to see rain with some snow mixing in to the west on Tuesday, with most of that light impact on KELOLAND Wednesday through Thursday.

It will be a depression with a lot of moisture, with a fair amount of rain probably the further east you go. We can even have thunderstorms to the east and southeast with the strength of this system. We will also be watching for the potential for some of these storms to become strong, even severe at times.

To the west, where the colder air will be in place, the rain is changing to wet and heavy snow. Towards the Black Hills, it could be a major storm with significant travel impacts. Keep an eye out for future mid-week outlook updates.

Once this clears the area by the end of the week we will calm down beyond a few showers here and there.

Well below average temperatures will remain through the Easter weekend.
