WATERTOWN, S.D.–Another miserable day of travel conditions are expected across central and eastern South Dakota.

In fact, state officials are urging people to stay off the roads altogether.

On Wednesday night, the DOT closed Interstate 29 from Watertown to the North Dakota border because of very poor conditions.

This is day three of a winter storm that began impacting eastern South Dakota on Tuesday with freezing rain.

Today, we’ll see snow–heavy at times.

Katherine King is a forecaster at the National Weather Service Office in Aberdeen. She says all of northeast South Dakota remains under a Winter Storm Warning….

We’re going to see a lot of wind today too….

I asked King if the Winter Storm Warning could potentially be upgraded to a Blizzard Warning today…

Aberdeen has received seven inches of snow from this storm system as of this morning.
