RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the higher elevations of Custer County - including Custer, Pringle, Jewel Cave, Custer State Park and Wind Cave National Park. Accumulations of 2″-5″ of snow looks likely by midnight tonight with isolated higher amounts possible. Expect reduced visibility and slippery roads.

We will see scattered snow showers today, with the best chance of accumulating snow in the southern Black Hills. Trace amounts are possible elsewhere. Temperatures will be cooler today and it will be breezy at times.

Plenty of sunshine will start us off on Saturday, but clouds will increase as we go through the afternoon hours. Another round of snow showers will be likely Saturday night, which could bring some quick accumulations for some. The best chance of accumulating snow will be in the northern hills and northwest South Dakota. Sunday will be mostly cloudy with snow showers developing through the afternoon. Highs over the weekend will range from the 30s to low 40s.

Colder air and snow showers will continue for much of next week. Accumulations will be light for much of the area. Temperatures will fall into the 20s for high temperatures and some spots on the plains could stay in the teens.
