Heavy snow shut down portions of I-25 and I-90 across Wyoming and South Dakota Friday evening. Most roads remained closed as of early Saturday morning.
Much of the heavy snow has tapered off but flakes continue to fall across the region. The heaviest snow appears to be over but gusty winds up to 40-60 mph will continue to contribute to blowing and drifting snow Saturday.
Power outages affected some communities as heavy, wet snow weighed down branches and power lines. Rapid City, S.D. experienced power outages Friday night as snow buried the town.
Many locations across Wyoming and South Dakota saw snowfall accumulations of 2 feet or more. Lead, S.D. measured nearly 44 inches as of early Saturday morning.
Meanwhile, farther east on the warmer side of the storm, severe storms ignited from Wisconsin to Oklahoma, producing tornadoes, gusty winds, and hail.
