RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Spring snow in the western Dakotas isn't
likely to stick around for long.
National Weather Service meteorologist Melissa Smith in Rapid
City says that with fairly warm ground temperatures, the snow
should melt quickly. She says it's a typical spring storm.
Rapid City had 3 inches of snow on the ground early Friday, and
the Deadwood area had 7 inches. The forecast called for up to a
foot of snow in the northern Black Hills by midday, but only 3-6
inches in most other parts of western South Dakota and North
Rapid City set a rainfall record on Thursday. The weather
service says 0.41 inches was recorded, breaking the record for the
date of 0.32 inches set in 1957.
