Last Year's Ice Storm

April 9, 2014, 5:28 PM by Scot Mundt

Last Year's Ice Storm

Take a glance around Sioux Falls and you can still see the effects of last year's crippling ice storm.  It brought Sioux Falls to a halt as ice caused large branches and trees to tumble resulting in blocked roads and driveways.

It all came from an area of low pressure to our south which not only pumped in plenty of moisture in southeast KELOLAND, it also brought above freezing temperatures in the higher layers of the atmosphere.  Northeast winds at the surface kept us cold with temps near freezing for three days.

The result was ice that accumulated to three-quarters of an inch or more during the first day of the storm.  Six inches of snow followed the next two days to add to the misery.  The clean up took months and it was a storm we're still talking about today.
