With heavy snow and strong wind expected across much of South Dakota, State Transportation and Public Safety officials are asking people to avoid any unnecessary travel.
As the storm moves across the state, highways may become snow packed and slippery. Areas of blowing and drifting snow can be expected. The strong winds could also create conditions of near-zero visibility.
The state wants travelers to be aware that conditions could force it to close parts of the interstate and some highways. DOT crews will plow until early evening hours as conditions allow. After that, plows will be pulled from the roads until Wednesday morning.
The warning is in place for all non-emergency travel from Tuesday evening through at least Wednesday afternoon.
