... Blizzard watch remains in effect from Tuesday morning through
Tuesday afternoon...

* timing... worst conditions from early Tuesday through mid
afternoon Tuesday.

* Accumulations... 2 to 5 inches of snow possible... with the
highest amounts north of Interstate 90. The main focus is most
likely from Brookings to Huron south towards Chamberlain.

* Wind and visibility... north to northwest winds of 30 to 45 mph
will be common... with some gusts around 50 mph possible. If
these winds materialize coupled with falling snow... visibility
reductions of less than a quarter mile could occur. After the
falling snow ends... the visibility will greatly increase.

A blizzard watch means there is a potential for falling and/or
blowing snow with strong winds and extremely poor visibilities.
This can lead to whiteout conditions and make travel very
dangerous.
