SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- We’ve declared Friday as a First Alert Weather Day and a BLIZZARD WARNING has been issued by the National Weather Service for a large part of our area, mainly north and west of Sioux Falls. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY will be in effect Friday for the Sioux Falls area. Colder air will move in turning the rain to snow from west to east on Friday and the wind will increase in strength. Heaviest snowfall amounts look to be across parts of northern and central South Dakota where we could see a foot or more of snow. In places like Aberdeen and Pierre, we could see 8 to 12 inches of snow. In parts of east central South Dakota, especially around Brookings, one to two tenths of an inch of ice could fall, with a couple of inches of snow on top of that. Around Sioux Falls and the tri-state area, we’re looking at mainly rain during the day Friday, then seeing about two inches of snow fall Friday night. Travel is looking to be impacted Friday night and even into Saturday morning before the sun returns Saturday and temperatures rebound into the 30s and 40s.
