WINTER STORM WATCH

URGENT – WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE

National Weather Service Rapid City SD

1147 AM MDT Wed Mar 14 2018

.A moisture laden storm system will move from the Rockies into

the central Plains Thursday into Friday. The storm will draw

colder air into it, which would allow precipitation to change to

snow over parts of northeastern Wyoming and western South Dakota.

Relatively warm air above the ground may support freezing rain or

sleet, mainly east of the Black Hills, with enough accumulation

to cause notable icing.

Uncertainty still exists with the exact track of the storm as

well as it’s temperature profile. Stay tuned to later forecasts

for updates.
