Thunderstorms On Plains

Ponca City Now - October 4, 2013 6:35 am

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Autumn storms are threatening much of the Midwest, with heavy snow in South Dakota and possibly dangerous thunderstorms from Wisconsin to Oklahoma.

The National Weather Service says the summerlike system expected to hit the Plains on Friday could pack thunder, high winds, heavy rain and possibly tornadoes.

Besides Wisconsin and Oklahoma, other states in the path include Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri. Even Texas could be impacted.

Meteorologists say this is the first time since at least 2000 that a storm this size in the region has been forecast in October a day in advance.

In South Dakota, as much as 30 inches of snow could fall in the Black Hills, and blizzard conditions are likely along the eastern slopes, with 12 inches or more possible on the plains.
