Western SD in Store for More Wild Weather

National Weather Service


RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – Western South Dakota looks to be in store for more wild weather, a week after a devastating early fall snowstorm rocked the region.

The National Weather Service says a storm system moving into the area will bring rain and high winds Friday. Meteorologist Jeff Schild tells the Rapid City Journal that the only snow expected should be in the high elevations of the Black Hills.

Last weekend’s storm dumped up to 4 feet of snow in the Black Hills, cutting power to about 30,000 customers, killing tens of thousands of cattle, damaging numerous buildings, bringing travel to a standstill and shutting down schools for days.

Schild says the new system could bring an inch of rain to some areas, which could lead to flash flooding.
