.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Wednesday Night)
Issued at 319 PM CST Tue Feb 25 2020

Northwesterly flow aloft will bring cooler temperatures to the
region for the next few days. High pressure sliding southward
tonight will bring cold temps with lows dropping into the single
digits above zero. Temperatures could be cooler if skies are able to
clear some tonight. Dry conditions are expected on Wednesday with
highs reaching the upper teens, in western MN, to the mid 30s, in
south central SD. A weak low pressure system crossing western South
Dakota Wednesday night could bring light snow to far western CWA.
Little to no accumulating snowfall is expected at this time.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 319 PM CST Tue Feb 25 2020

The extended period looks pretty quiet at this point, with just a
few weak shortwaves tracking over the area and possibly bringing
some light snow showers to the area. The most likely time periods
for light snow appear to be Thursday night and again toward the very
end of the period. Again, amounts look minimal with little in the
way of impacts.

The coolest day of the period will be Thursday, with highs ranging
from the lower 20s east to the upper 30s west. 30s and 40s will then
be common for highs through the remainder of the period, with a few
locations west of the Missouri River possibly exceeding 50 degrees
on Saturday. After a couple of nights of lows in the teens to lower
20s Thursday night and Friday night, overnight lows will generally
be in the 20s.

Issued at 1136 AM CST Tue Feb 25 2020
