South Dakota Sees Staggering Statewide Snowfall Totals

Snowfall Totals

The South Dakota Office of Emergency Management has an outline of where the amounts of snow are highest in South Dakota.  The snowfall kings appear to be the people in southwestern, South Dakota.  Note the map shows the yellow near Oelrichs in eastern Fall River County with over 36 inches of snow. One report near the center of Shannon county tallied 26.5 inches of snow from this near week-long event.

Sioux Falls itself received anywhere from 7 to 9 inches of snow in addition to the ice and sleet that preceded it.  The imaging shows that the east side of town got less than the west side.  Plus in the areas around Wall Lake, Humbolt, Hartford and Colton there were pockets of 10 plus inches.

Of the major cities in South Dakota, Yankton seemed to get the least amount of snow with 4 inches.  Going up the scale it’s Aberdeen (6.6), Sioux Falls (7.4) Watertown 9.4), Mitchell (10), Huron (11), Brookings (11), Pierre (11.5) and Rapid City piling up 22.4 inches.

The graphic map is the update as of 1pm on Thursday with the conclusion of the Winter Storm Warning in most areas.  Not much additional accumulation is expected as only flurries are forecast through Friday morning.
