Winter Storm to Hit Gillette Sunday Evening

Mild temperatures on Sunday will give way to snow in the evening through Monday morning with predictions of anywhere from six to 12 inches throughoout Campbell County. Exactly how much snow we might see is akin to predicting the spread in tonight’s Super Bowl.

The chance of snow increases from 40% Sunday afternoon to 100% by evening, according to the National Weather Service, with temperatures dipping into the low 30s by 5 p.m.

“It will snow, but the question is how much?” Eric Helgeson, lead meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Rapid City, asked rhetorically.
And though the snow will be heavy at times, Helgeson said, the upshot is the lack of wind, which is predicted to be between 13 and 17 mph.
“It will be a decent and gentle wind, so that’s nice,” he said.
The storm is predicted to impact much of Wyoming as well as southwestern South Dakota. For more information, see the National Weather Service.
