SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — It has been a snowy start to April in South Dakota — and the blizzard-like weather will stick around Wednesday.

This week’s winter storm has brought a lot of fresh snow for portions of KELOLAND. As of 12 p.m. CT, Hot Springs reported the most snow with 30 inches. Hermosa had 24 inches fall — Custer isn’t far behind at 21.5 inches of snow.

14 inches have been reported in Pierre and Aberdeen added 11 inches to their yearly total.

Wind will increase on Wednesday — gusts up to 50mph are likely. These high winds in combination with the fresh snow will make travel impossible.

The high winds and blowing snow did cause power issues.

The Brookings County Sheriff’s Office posted a video of powerlines galloping in the wind.

The sheriff’s office says to be careful and to report power outages. They also want to remind you that non-functioning stoplights become four-way stops.
