SIOUX FALLS -- A winter storm system that is moving through the region has blanketed South Dakota, with the southeast portion of the state seeing the highest snow accumulations.

SIOUX FALLS - A winter storm system that is moving through the region has blanketed South Dakota, with the southeast portion of the state seeing the highest snow accumulations.

Tim Masters with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls says snow accumulations in the southeast corner ranged from 5 to 10 inches. Portions of central South Dakota woke up Saturday to find around 8 inches of snow on the ground, while other areas in the northeast part of the state only saw an inch.

Masters says snow should stop falling around noon, but it will be followed with wind gusts of up to 30 mph that will cause blowing and drifting snow, particularly in rural areas.

A winter storm warning covering much of the state is set to expire at 6 p.m. Saturday.
