SIOUX FALLS - A strong winter storm system that is moving into the region will put most of South Dakota under a winter storm warning starting Friday evening.

The National Weather Service says the system will drop at least a couple of inches in much of the state and up to a foot in some areas. The winter storm warning expanding from southwestern South Dakota through the northeastern part of the state will go into effect at 6 p.m. Friday.

The storm is expected to end Saturday afternoon, but it will be followed by wind gusts that could reach 30 mph and may produce blowing and drifting snow.

Meteorologist Brad Temeyer with the Weather Service in Sioux Falls says wind chills will drop to zero in the southeastern tip of the state and nearly 20 below zero in the northeastern corner.
