Winter will be coming back "with a vengeance" later this week according to one meteorologist.

A "pretty large" winter storm system has its eyes set on South Dakota, according to Matt Dux of the National Weather Service, that could drop a couple inches of snow on the region along with below freezing temperatures.

The storm is anticipated to hit South Dakota, including Mitchell, late Wednesday and continue into Thursday, with a few inches of potential snowfall, Dux said.

Until then, temperatures will remain "fairly warm," hitting 40 degrees or higher today and Wednesday. But by Thursday, single digit temps are expected, Dux said, and will remain through the weekend.

Winds during the storm will be between 20 and 30 mph, Dux said, and could cause some blowing snow problems for travelers.

"It may not be a blizzard, but it is definitely going to have some big impact with any snow that falls," Dux said. "It's pretty warm right now but winter is coming back ... so be aware of the forecast and continue to monitor it because this is a forecast that will change several times between now and Wednesday."
