Winter Wonderland in May
(AP) – A May snowstorm has dumped more than a foot of snow in South Dakota’s Black Hills.
Meteorologist Kyle Carstens of the National Weather Service in Rapid City says between 10 to 18 inches of snow already has fallen in the Black Hills as of Sunday morning.
Snowfall could total 20 to 24 inches by the time the system passes.
Rapid City reports 8 to 11 inches of snow and could see a foot.
Carstens says the snow is not unusual for this time of year.
He says this is the wettest time of the year for the Rapid City area, and temperatures have been hovering just below freezing.
Carstens says many roads have deep slush, but the snow won’t stay.
Temperatures are expected to reach the 60s by mid-week.
