RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – Spring snowstorms continue to set records in the Dakotas.
The National Weather Service says a system moving through South Dakota dropped 3.4 inches of snow at the Rapid City airport Tuesday, surpassing the record for the date of 3.3 inches in 1960.
The storm in western, central and northern South Dakota is expected to dump as much as 15 inches of snow on some areas by Thursday. It also is bringing snow to southeastern North Dakota.
A storm that hit South Dakota last week dropped as much as 2 1/2 feet of snow and brought freezing rain to the east, cutting power to nearly 100,000 people. Sioux Falls is still in recovery mode.
A weekend storm dropped a record 17.3 inches of snow on Bismarck, N.D. Snow removal continues.
