Major storm on the way: rain, ice, heavy snow likely
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - An early spring snowstorm is in store for parts of the Dakotas early this week.
Various advisories and warnings have been posted in the Dakotas. Forecasters expect the heaviest snow in South Dakota, with a foot or more falling in some areas by Wednesday morning, accompanied by winds gusting up to 40 mph.
Parts of southwest North Dakota could see 8 inches of snow. The Department of Transportation has advised no travel for that portion of the state.
Freezing rain also is a possibility in both states.
