NWS Downgrades Winter Storm Warning to Winter Weather Advisory

National Weather Service


ABERDEEN, S.D. – (DRG News) Forecasters now say that parts of central South Dakota are no longer part of a Winter Storm Warning and instead are expecting a Winter Weather Advisory to remain in the forecast through tomorrow morning.  The National Weather Service says since lower amounts of snow are falling than first believed, the change has been made in the weather forecast.  Current forecasts are showing that the area will likely see a total of about 3-5 inches of snowfall tonight through tomorrow.  Snow is melting in some areas where it has been falling so far today.  The Weather Service says Winter Storm Warnings are still posted for counties southwest of the Pierre/Murdo area and the northeastern corner of the state has a Winter Storm Watch in effect for right now.

Looking ahead a few days, temperatures should improve and Renee Wise of the NWS says it’s more likely that any precipitation we get will be in the form of rain, with the possibility that it will mix with or turn to snow in the evenings during the weekend.

With the cancellation of the Winter Storm Warning for central parts of the state, the Weather Service now has a Winter Weather Advisory in effect until seven tomorrow morning.
