WATERTOWN, S.D.–Tuesday was the first full day of spring, but wintry weather conditions forced the South Dakota DOT to close Interstate 29 from Watertown to the North Dakota line.

They said that accumulating snow was causing hazardous travel.

No travel advisories were also in place on secondary highways in northeast South Dakota due to the accumulating snow and low visibilities associated with a winter weather system.
