First snow of the season!
RAPID CITY, S.D.- Many locations across the Black Hills received their first snowflakes of the season Wednesday morning. Reports stretched from Lead to Colonial Pine Hills, where a dusting of snow sat on the ground, cooled by a passing cold front. In fact, the first snowfall of the year at NewsCenter1 in Rapid City took place exactly one year ago, but the station didn’t catch flakes today.
A Red Flag Warning remains in place for nearly all of South Dakota today, as this minimal moisture is pushed out of the area by winds of 40-60 miles per hour.
Additionally, the National Weather Service radar in New Underwood is feeling a bit under the weather, so no radar data was available during this morning’s precipitation. If you took any photos or videos of our first snowfall, please submit them here!
