Winter Storm affecting area to move out Monday

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The National Weather Service says a winter storm will gradually wind down from west to east today.

Gusty north winds may create areas of blowing and drifting snow over parts of western South Dakota, especially in the areas that recently received accumulating snow.

Winter Storm Warnings have been dropped over the western South Dakota Plains and into central South Dakota and have been replaced with Winter Weather Advisories. However, blizzard conditions are up for Chamberlain eastward and southward today.

Most immediate areas have reported anywhere from 4 up to 8 inches of snow. Deadwood reported just 3 inches last night while Dupree reported a foot. Sturgis was reporting between 5 and 6 inches last evening. Downtown Rapid City reported nearly 3 inches last evening.

The snow brought slippery roads Sunday and law enforcement was busy responding to accidents.

Authorities in Jackson County, South Dakota say icy roads led to a crash early Sunday.

The sheriff’s office says it happened on I-90 just before 3 a.m. Sunday.

The Interior Volunteer Fire Department and Wall Ambulance were called to the scene.

Authorities say a truck slid into the median and rolled.

The driver was taken to the Philip hospital with serious non-life-threatening injuries.
