Winter’s Not Over Yet For Western South Dakota. Storm on Horizon For Late Monday
It looks like Mother nature is going to roll out one more dose of winter for the Black Hills Monday night into Tuesday. The forecast for Rapid City calls for a hearty 6" of snow.
It begins with a cool rain Monday that changes to wet and heavy snow late in the evening. Officials say that with the trees in partial bloom, falling limbs could pose a danger.
But wait - there's more. If your heading into the higher elevations, such as Hill City, plan for between 8 - 10" of snow.
Because of the high winds that are expected with this system, the National Weather Service in Rapid City has issued a Winter Storm Watch, which is in effect from late Monday through Tuesday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Sioux Falls should see a few cool, wet days in-a-row with a chance of that rain mixed with snow for Wednesday. Thankfully, not the 6" that Rapid City is expecting.
There's always a "yet" with April weather.
