  • Snow will continue to move through portions of the Black Hills this morning, along with some breezy conditions.
  • Around and inch or so is expected in Rapid City and surrounding areas, but this could still cause slick roads – give yourself extra time.

National Road Conditions

Here’s a look at current road conditions across the region.

Picture 2

  • Winter Weather advisories are expected to continue through the early morning, but should expire by late morning.
  • Another several inches of snow have fallen in the Northern Hills, but the good news is we are expecting to hold off on further events until at least Sunday.

Picture 3

  • As snow exits, we could see breezy conditions in some portions of our region causing some patchy blowing and drifting snow.
  • Overall though, conditions will improve as we approach Thursday evening.

Picutre 4

  • Friday will see temperatures in the 30s and 40s… possible even the 50s through the I-90 corridor with plenty of sunshine.
  • This should melt a good portion of our snow – but the Northern Hills will continue to be socked in.

Picture 6

  • Long range forecast guidance shows a chance for snow Sunday afternoon, particularly through northeastern Wyoming and the Black Hills.
  • Should move through rather quickly – not expecting widespread impacts.

Picture 7

  • Snow accumulations so far look on the lighter side, with almost nothing for the South Dakota plains.
  • We’ll continue to keep an eye on it, but so far no indications that this will interrupt travel plans.
