Parts of the Dakotas are in for a snowy weekend.
The National Weather Service has posted a winter weather advisory for central and east central South Dakota through Friday, and a winter storm watch for the north central and northeast parts of the state Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning.
Reported snow totals Friday were highest across the vertical middle of South Dakota. About 10 inches of snow fell in Meade County about 8 miles west-northwest of Marcus, while downtown Spearfish recorded 4.3 inches. Some areas around Pierre received 5 inches and Arlington recorded about 4 inches.
The weather service says accumulating snow and blowing snow also are possible throughout North Dakota this weekend, and wind chills in the region could plummet to as low as 30 degrees below zero.
