A strong low pressure system will move slowly eastward across the northern and central plains states through Wednesday night, keeping conditons cool and wet for at least the first half of the week. Some of the rain may mix with snow in the eastern Dakotas and western Minnesota, but accumulations are not expected to exceed an inch. Some of western South Dakota and southwest North Dakota will receive 2 to 5 inches of snow by Tuesday morning. Most of the precipitation Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday night will occur east of the Missouri River, and the air should be warm enough by then to keep it mainly rain.
The exact track of the low pressure system will have an effect impact on where the rain and snow occurs late Monday night and into Tuesday morning.
