Winter continues to linger across South Dakota. The latest storm has left several inches of snow across the state and is impacting drivers on Monday morning.

Road conditions differ from each area in South Dakota:

Sioux Falls: The interstate highways around the area are wet with scattered but light freezing rain and snow flurries. To the south, roads such as State Highway 44 and U.S. Highway 18 has scattered areas of slush and ice.

Black Hills: U.S. Highway 16 has scattered wet spots from Hill City to Custer, while traffic officials report scattered fog and slippery areas north of Keystone to Rapid City. Interstate 90 has scattered ice spots from Rapid City north to Spearfish and Belle Fourche.

Central: Scattered fog has reduced visibility down to less than a quarter of a mile north of Pierre. Reports show scattered snow, ice and slippery areas on U.S. Highway 14 west of Fort Pierre and south along U.S. Highway 83.

Northeast: Drivers from areas like Mobridge east to Aberdeen and Watertown can expect scattered slippery areas on the roads along with more snow cover than other parts of the state. Light snow cover has been reported on major highways such as U.S. Highway 12 and 212.
