The National Weather Service is cautioning residents about blowing snow in central and eastern North Dakota that's reducing visibilities to a half mile or less. Parts of South Dakota are getting even worse weather.

A winter storm warning is in effect for the central and northern Black Hills. Forecasters say two-day snow totals could reach a foot in some areas.

Much of the rest of South Dakota is dealing with strong winds and blowing snow. KELO-TV reports that the Summit area in northeastern South Dakota is seeing blizzard-like conditions, with visibility down to a few feet.

The Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan newspaper reports a burn ban is in place in Yankton County due to the wind.
