SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Another spring snow storm has eastern South Dakota in its sights.

A winter weather advisory is posted for the James River Valley, with 1-4 inches of snow expected.

Winds gusting to 35 mph are expected to blow the snow around and reduce visibilities in some areas to less than half a mile.

It will be the second storm this week. A system that passed through the state late Sunday into early Tuesday dumped several inches of snow in western and northeastern South Dakota.
