Alert

Please prepare now and be ready to halt travel later Friday & Saturday for a dangerous winter storm forecast.

Please make preparations and plan ahead for a potentially dangerous winter storm that will likely affect our area. If this storm and accompanying winds arrive as predicted, no travel will be advised. Please take this storm forecast seriously.

Information from the NWS in Sioux Falls, SD: 
Showers and thunderstorms will persist for much of the daytime hours Friday, but conditions will drastically change later Friday afternoon and Friday evening. Heavy snow is expected to develop, and along with strong winds will create blizzard conditions through the region and through Saturday. Heavy snow accumulation over a foot will be possible, likely breaking records for April and making travel impossible. Please take this storm seriously and make changes to any travel plans this weekend as recovery may be slow.

Instructions:

Please take this storm forecast seriously and plan ahead. Check on elderly neighbors and family members before the storm arrives to make sure they have the information needed to prepare for this potentially dangerous storm.
