 Snow is already falling Wednesday morning in the Black Hills, and rain elsewhere in the foothills and onto the plains.

However, some of that rain is already changing over to snow and more will continue to do so throughout the day on Wednesday.

Some places in the Black Hills will see 3" to 6" of snow and more in some locations. The snow could be falling at moderate rates at times as it slowing switches over outside of the hills during the afternoon hours on Wednesday.

Rapid City and other cities in the adjacent plains around the Black Hills could see their first measurable snow fall of the season with a slushy inch or two by Wednesday night.

Other locations could see a general 2" - 4" of snow (you may click on the attached snowfall graphic).

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Black Hills until 10 PM Wednesday evening.

Meteorologists at KOTA would like to remind everyone that the first snow of the season can catch drivers off guard. It's important to allow a few extra minutes to get to where you need to go, and slow down, be alert, and drive safe.
