South Dakota is now in the middle of a bitter cold snap with the kind of frigid temperatures not seen in several years.
In the coming days parts of the Black Hills will see high temperatures that are still below zero.
On this Dakota Digest we check in with our reporters around the state about the cold weather.
We begin in Aberdeen with SDPB’s Jenifer Jones who takes a look at snow totals on the ground in the wake of the arctic air blast .
You can find a National Weather Service website showing the record coldest temperatures in towns around the region here.
