PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Department of Transportation is advising no travel in the northern Black Hills as heavy snowfall continues in the area.

The National Weather Service is predicting total snow accumulations of 10 to 20 inches. A winter storm warning is in effect through Wednesday evening.
