Snow amounts will be lighter across central, South Dakota where one to three inches are possible and across the east, lower amounts of one inch or less is expected.
Besides the snow, strong northerly winds up to 45mph will create areas of blowing snow and reduce visibilities. If you are planning on travel, use extreme caution.
