Then precipitation chances increase as the storm system moves closer to South Dakota with mainly rain showers and isolated thunderstorms.

Precipitation continues, with rain changing over to heavy snow for the Black Hills where a Winter Storm Watch is in effect. Rain and thunderstorms elsewhere with an isolated strong to severe thunderstorm cannot be ruled out in south-central, SD.

On Sunday, rain continues for central and eastern, South Dakota, snow for the Black Hills, and a mixture of rain or snow for western South Dakota.

By Monday, the chances of precipitation will decrease but remain in the area as the system slowly moves away from the region.
