SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Along with several late starts Wednesday morning, blowing snow caused at least five schools in the area to send students home early.

Just before 11:30 a.m. CT, Sioux Falls police sent out a tweet warning people that the blowing snow is causing area highways and the interstate to get slick.

Northwest winds have increased across much of eastern KELOLAND at 20-35 miles per hour as a cold front pushes south. Areas of blowing snow will create slick spots on roads and reduced visibilities as well.
