Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether says residents need to hunker down, as the storm is going to last a while.

National Weather Service meteorologist Todd Heitkamp says another quarter inch of rain is expected in Sioux Falls, followed by winds gusting to 30-40 miles per hour and 4 to 7 inches of snow in Sioux Falls after midnight.

As much as 10 to 16 inches of snow is expected north and west of the city.

An early spring storm walloped South Dakota early Tuesday, downing large tree limbs and cutting power to thousands of homes and businesses.
