Let's start out in western, South Dakota and the Black Hills.  A storm system will once again move into the region bring rain, snow and much colder temperatures for Easter Weekend.  Precipitation will begin during the early morning hours on Saturday as the form of rain and snow before changing over to all snow by Saturday night.  The highest snowfall accumulations look to be over the Black Hills where a Winter Storm Watch is in effect.

Out in eastern, South Dakota impacts from this storm system on the precipitation side of things will be less then those in the west.  Rain will spill into the eastern half of the state as early as Friday evening and continue chances into Saturday.  Some of the rain then may mix with some snow before going back to rain by Easter.  Snow amounts in the east look to be little or none through Easter morning.
