Episode Narrative New snowfall varying from 2 to 8 inches, previous snow cover, and northwest winds gusting to over 40 mph combined to produce widespread blowing and drifting snow over all of southeast South Dakota. The worst conditions, with widespread visibilities below a quarter mile, were from the James to Missouri River valleys, or along and southwest of a line from Huron to Vermillion. These conditions were also observed more locally to the east of this area. Travel was brought to a standstill during the worst conditions. Even where visibilities were a little higher, travel was extremely difficult and dangerous because of the snowfall, drifting snow, and dangerous wind chills that accompanied the storm. The storm forced the closing of schools and businesses, and postponement of athletic events and other activities. The snow, blowing snow, and blizzard conditions took place on January 6th and 7th, while dangerous wind chills continued well into January 8th.
Event Narrative Persistent north to northwest winds combined with very cold air to produce wind chill values the frequently dropped to 35 below zero or a little colder. These extremely dangerous wind chills added to the hazards produced by the preceding blizzard. As winds slowly subsided during the night of January 7th, temperatures continued to drop to well below zero, keeping the wind chills at the very dangerous level through the morning of January 8th.
