SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Snow in western South Dakota is creating difficult travel conditions.

Snow started falling early on Monday, which prompted a winter weather advisory to be issued for the northern and central Black Hills where 3-6 inches of snow is expected. Strong winds are also part of the forecast for the area.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol says road conditions are deteriorating due to the snow.

The Highway Patrol shared a photo of a semi tipped along US Highway 85 between Cheyenne Crossing and the Wyoming line.
