Snowfall from April 17-19, 2013

Another winter storm has affected much of the region Wednesday through Thursday night.  Snow was heavy at times in portions of southeast South Dakota, southwest Minnesota and northwest Iowa.  While temperatures near freezing yesterday caused some of the snow to melt as it fell, many locations in southwest Minnesota and northwest Iowa received over 6 inches. This snow was accompanied by wind gusts around 40 mph which produce blowing snow and very low visibilities in open areas. Below is a map and list of snowfall reports received by the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls.
