Snowfall Totals from December 13th and 14th

Event Synopsis:
A fast moving low pressure system tracking through the northern plains produced a quick burst of snow across portions of central and northeastern South Dakota during the late afternoon and evening of December 13th through the early morning hours on December 14th.  Although the duration of the snowfall was only about 6 hours – a few locations picked up several inches of light, fluffy snow.   
The heaviest band of snow generally fell from just west of Pierre northeastward into Faulk County where snowfall totals ranged from 4 to 5 inches. On either side of this heavier band – lighter amounts of snow from 1 to 3 inches were common. 

 Below is a storm total snowfall map for all snowfall reports received through 11 am CST Monday.
