Bumpy Skies But Smooth Roads Expected for Holiday

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – South Dakotans traveling by car this holiday week should have no trouble. But storms elsewhere could impact air travelers connecting to flights through the major airline hubs.

The National Weather Service says temperatures might be a bit cooler than normal, but most of the Northern Plains should be dry.

Snow and ice are expected in the Northeast and heavy rains are forecast for parts of the Southeast.

Sioux Falls and Rapid City flights haven’t been affected yet, but that could change because of the impact of the storms on the bigger airports.

Besides nice weather, drivers who do venture out will pay a lot less for gas than in recent years. AAA says the average price nationally is $3.29 a gallon, the lowest since 2010.
