WESTERN, SOUTH DAKOTA - A storm system moving across Nebraska will kick up snows into South Dakota later today and continue into the first part on Saturday. Snow amounts appear to the heaviest over the Black Hills where Custer may see 9 to 12 inches of snow. Lesser amounts expected out in the plains where generally 2 to 4 inches are possible with isolated higher amounts.
This morning, the National Weather Service Office in Rapid City placed the Black Hills and foot hills under a Winter Storm Warning starting at 6:00pm MDT this evening and set to expire at noon MDT tomorrow.
Those across the foot hills near Rapid City and Hermosa may also see increase winds with gusts up to 35mph creating some areas of blowing snow and reduce visibilities.
Winter Weather Advisories are in place for the remaining counties across the southwest for tonight and into Saturday morning.
