Episode Narrative Snowfall mostly in the 2 to 4 inch range combined with winds sustained at over 30 mph and gusting as high as 50 mph to produce widespread blizzard conditions with near zero visibilities. The area affected by the blizzard was mostly west of the James River in southeast South Dakota, but extending east of the James River north of Interstate 90, as far east as Brookings and Madison. The blizzard conditions began near the start of the evening hours on November 6th, and continued into the predawn hours of November 7th. Interstate 90 from Mitchell west was closed because of the blizzard, with several motorists being stranded.
Event Narrative Strong northwest winds caused areas of blowing snow, with local visibilities around a quarter mile, as earlier blizzard conditions gradually abated.
