Another snowstorm bears down on South Dakota

RAPID CITY (AP) -- South Dakota could be in for yet another spring snowstorm.

The National Weather Service has posted a winter storm warning for southwestern South Dakota through Wednesday night. The bad weather is expected to extend into the central and northeastern parts of the state.

Forecasters say the storm could dump up to 15 inches of snow in the southwest, with lesser but still significant amounts in the other areas.

A storm that hit the state last week dropped as much as 2 ½ feet of snow on some areas and brought freezing rain to the east, coating trees and power lines and knocking out power to nearly 100,000 people.

At least 30 South Dakota communities and school districts were holding elections Tuesday after last week's storm resulted in a one-week postponement.
