SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A record-setting spring storm continues to pound South Dakota. The National Weather Service warns that the state is in for another day of heavy snowfall and freezing rain. Electricity remains out to thousands in the Sioux Falls area, and many schools and local government offices across the state remain closed.
The weather service says 20 inches of snow fell in Rapid City on Tuesday – the city’s snowiest day of all time. Other records also were set, including 1.42 inches of precipitation in Sioux Falls, a record for the date in that city.
The bad weather could extend into southeastern North Dakota, where up to a foot of snow could fall Thursday in the Wahpeton area and points south.
