Today will feel more like January than late March with highs in the 20s and lower 30s. A strong storm system will move onto the Plains Thursday and exit Friday night. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible Thursday night with isolated severe storms possible. By late Thursday night into Friday snow will develop in central SD and spread east, especially north of I-90. Isolated severe storms will again be possible, but this time over parts of northwest IA. Very strong northerly winds will develop Friday and could cause extra problems if the snow becomes heavy enough. Stay Tuned!
Warm and moderately unstable air will return on Thursday, with a few severe storms possible during the evening, especially in southeast SD and northeast NE. As a strong low pressure wraps up and moves east on Friday, late afternoon and evening storms will be possible in parts of northwest Iowa.
Snow will overspread the area on Friday morning and may bring hazardous conditions with it into Friday night. Strong northerly winds could exacerbate things if higher snowfall amounts occur. Be prepared to make changes to plans on Friday, especially north of I-90.
