Black Friday Shopping

Black Friday shoppers may experience some weather issues later on today and into Friday.  The National Weather Service has placed central, east-central, north-central, northeast and southeast, South Dakota under a Winter Weather Advisory starting this afternoon and continuing into tonight and Friday morning.

Mixture of light snow and light freezing drizzle is expected, which could cause some travel issues as soon as this afternoon for motorists across central and eastern, South Dakota.  The west looks to be dry today with cloudy skies and breezy conditions.  Today's highs will be into the upper 20s to the mid 30s.

For the late shoppers, tonight will remain cloudy with continuing chances of light snow or light freezing drizzle across the east and central regions of the state.  Overnight lows look to drop into the 20s.

On Black Friday itself, temperatures will reach into the 30s with cloudy skies.  A wintry mix of precipitation will be possible statewide ahead of a powerful winter storm.
