Meteorologist Mike Fuhs of the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls says the current winter storm might possibly be the most significant storm (winter storm system) that will affect much of the state that we have had all winter or spring in this case.  Fuhs tells KSOO Radio: "There will be a lot of snow throughout the central and western portions of South Dakota extending right into south eastern South Dakota around Brookings and  Huron.  As you proceed eastward---obviously this freezing rain will persist for a while.  Then it will probably change over to sleet as today progresses.  I am anticipating that through tonight and certainly by Wednesday morning--even areas in eastern South Dakota should be all snow by then."

Fuhs says Sioux Falls could get 6 to 7 inches of snow---taking place Wednesday through Wednesday night  "The more immediate concern is this freezing rain which is really glazing up wires, untreated surfaces, cars  and doors."

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Sioux Falls and extreme southeast South Dakota Tuesday for icy conditions.
