This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of northwest Iowa,
west central Iowa, southwest Minnesota, northeast Nebraska,
central South Dakota, east central South Dakota, south central
South Dakota, and southeast South Dakota.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Temperatures are likely to return to readings at or just below
freezing tonight for areas generally north of Interstate 90 and
west of Interstate 29. Take appropriate actions to protect newly
emergent or other tender vegetation.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

A strong spring storm system will usher widespread precipitation
across the area late Saturday through Sunday night, with a mix or
change to accumulating snowfall across the area Sunday night into
early Monday. The most likely axis for accumulating snowfall at
this time will run across southeast South Dakota into southwest
Minnesota, but greatest amounts, potentially in excess of 3
inches, will favor areas of higher terrain near the Buffalo Ridge
and across east central South Dakota. With the rain to snow
transition critically dependent on near surface temperatures,
there remains considerable uncertainty in potential snowfall


Spotter activation will not be needed.
