  • Roads will be slick, snow covered and even in some cases dangerous for travel this morning
  • Warm road surfaces will have a hard time keeping the snow off for a second day in a row, roads that were fine yesterday may not be as safe this morning, use caution
  • Even a mile or two can make a big difference of impacts, for instance, downtown Rapid City will more than likely be in better shape than Highway 16.
  • Make sure to not use your driveway as a reference for weather conditions somewhere down the road, impacts will be highly localized and your destination could be experiencing difficult conditions compared to where you’re coming from

  • Here is a ballpark estimate of additional accumulations expected today
  • Higher elevations will see more snow, and more travel impacts.
  • Rapid City, although at a lower elevation, could still see decent impacts given upslope enhancement

  • By this evening, snow tapers off and conditions will begin to improve rapidly
  • Thursday will see sunny, dry conditions with temperatures reaching the upper 50’s, much better travel weather
  • Check below for up-to-date road conditions and current weather conditions, be safe out there!
