SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — No travel is advised in the northwestern corner of South Dakota, and motorists in other areas are advised to use caution as a spring snow storm hits.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for the west and north central areas of the state through the day, and for northeastern and east central South Dakota Monday afternoon and night. Some schools in the region are starting late or canceling classes.

A winter storm warning is posted for the southwest and south central regions.

Forecasters say snowfall amounts could reach a foot, and winds gusting to 50 mph will blow the snow around. Rain and sleet before the snow could create icy conditions in the northeast. State Transportation Secretary Darin Bergquist says travel will be difficult if not impossible.
