The National Weather Service issued an advisory for western South Dakota on Wednesday morning, with as much as 5 inches of snow expected. The Rapid City Police Department said traffic was almost at a standstill on some main roads, and that officers had responded to several weather-related accidents.

The weather service posted a winter storm watch for much of the eastern third of the state on Thursday, with up to 9 inches of snow possible, along with gusty winds.

A system that passed through late Sunday into early Tuesday dumped several inches of snow in western and northeastern South Dakota.
