Winter Weather Advisory Issued For Yankton Area

After a few mild days, most of the Yankton area is in line for a taste of winter headed into the weekend.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a winter weather advisory from midnight Friday morning through midnight Saturday morning. Moderate snow and winds gusting up to 35 miles per hour are possible for portions of southeast, east-central and eastern South Dakota as an Alberta clipper sweeps through the region.

As of this writing, the NWS said 2-4 inches of snow are possible in the Yankton area. Heavier snow is expected to the east, with some locations in southwest Minnesota possibly seeing more than a foot of snow.

Conditions are forecast to clear out early Saturday, but colder temperatures will also arrive before a warmup begins Sunday.
