Drivers urged to use caution during the morning commute and be aware of changing weather and road conditions.

5:23 a.m. – According to Rapid City Street Department; crews are out monitoring the snow event, focusing close attention on main lines, hills, collectors and residential areas.

We have received approximately three inches of snowfall overnight mainly sticking in the grassy areas. With the warmer temperatures, it has melted on roadways except for some slushy areas scattered through the city.

Crews will continue to monitor the situation and are prepared to adapt to changing road conditions through the day and into the evening with overlapping crews. Drive with caution as there may be scattered slippery conditions during the morning commute.
