RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - A major spring storm will bring everything from severe thunderstorms to a blizzard today and tomorrow ... fasten your seatbelts!

First, warm, humid and unstable air will contribute to our first severe weather threat of the season late this afternoon. Strong storms will erupt this afternoon, with large hail and damaging winds. Isolated tornadoes will be possible near the Nebraska line.

Tonight and Saturday, an intense surface cyclone will move into South Dakota. This storm will wrap in cold air and moisture, creating heavy wet snow. Winds will be high, too so expect a raging blizzard by tomorrow from northeast Wyoming to northwest South Dakota. The snow will try to get into Rapid City late tomorrow and tomorrow night.

The storm moves away Sunday, but gusty winds will still occur. Nice weather returns Monday and Tuesday.
