Let’s focus on the pattern change later next week that may FINALLY bring us some spring-like air…

Ahhh…

Okay, now let’s deal with our short term forecast that includes another round of snowflakes late Sunday. Here’s the setup…

An area of low pressure will head out of the northern Rockies and will slide southeast from the Dakotas into the Missouri Valley. On the northern periphery of the low, a band of moderate snow will develop well to our west during the day Sunday.

SNOW1

This band of snow will progress southeastward as we head into Sunday evening but as we typically do with systems like this one–we have some DRY air in place so it’ll take some time for any of this snow to reach the ground.

SNOW2

Snow should finally be reaching the ground late evening into the overnight. This system will also be weakening as it moves in–so I’m not anticipating any significant snowfall rates locally.

SNOW3

The heaviest totals will be southwest of the Region and even those totals aren’t impressive. Perhaps an inch or two as it looks right now. Areas of the northern Plains will see a bit more as the system looks more impressive before it moves into our area. Snow and some rain mixed in will linger throughout the day Monday with mainly cloudy skies.

SNOW4

As we like to show you at Region Weather–here are some options. We’re thinking 1-2 inches at best. Keep in mind, it will be falling at night–pretty much the only time this time of year that we can get anything to stick.

The GFS, Euro, GEM, and NAM models…

After this, we begin to slowly warm up before a surge of spring-like air really ramps up late week. We’ll have updates!
