Thunderstorms, heavy snow, moving into Midwest
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Powerful storms crawled into the Midwest on Friday, dumping heavy snow in South Dakota, spawning a tornado in Nebraska and threatening dangerous thunderstorms from Oklahoma to Wisconsin.
A foot of snow had fallen in western South Dakota’s scenic Black Hills by early Friday, thanks to a storm gaining strength as it slowly moves east from Colorado and Wyoming. Blizzard conditions were expected in the area, with as much as 3 feet of snow and wind gusts of between 50 and 70 mph.
Although early October snowfalls aren’t unusual in the Black Hills, a storm of this magnitude happens only once every decade or two on the plains, National Weather Service meteorologist Steve Trimarchi said.
