SOUTH DAKOTA - The storm system that is forecast to start impacting the region late tomorrow and into Thursday remains on track.  Winter Storm Watches remain in effect for southwest, South Dakota and additional weather headlines from the National Weather Service would not be out of the question for eastern, South Dakota later today.

The best risk for accumulating snow from this event looks to be across southern, South Dakota and up towards east-central, South Dakota.

As of right now, it appears the heaviest amounts will be across eastern regions of southwest, South Dakota and into the south-central.  Four to six inches of snow looks common with some isolated higher amounts.

Towards the southeast and east-central, South Dakota, lesser amounts of two to four inches will be possible with some isolated higher amounts near the Brookings area.
