Another clipper from the northwest and it's another blizzard for parts of KELOLAND. It's a pattern that is firmly in place and it's one that's been causing numerous travel problems in KELOLAND.
The snow melted last weekend as temperatures warmed above freezing, but many locations still have plenty of snow on the ground.
East central South Dakota has some of the deepest snow with nine inches in Watertown, six is being reported in Brookings, with four in Sibley and one in Sioux Falls.
Much of the snow now has a hard crust over it. This crust is slick and allows any loose and/or new snow to easily glide over it. Strong winds are able to pick up the loose snow and blow it around creating whiteout conditions at times and numerous travel problems.
Strong winds and light snow will be watched closely this weekend as more clippers move in from the northwest. Of course, as strong as winds have been lately, it doesn't take much to get whiteout conditions.
