Much of South Dakota will face very serious weather conditions over the next couple of days.  Counties in  the southeast have a Blizzard Warning, a Winter Storm Warning, and a Winter Weather Advisory to run Monday and Tuesday, March 5th and 6th.  Alex Ferguson with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls says the pattern that brought 50-degree temperatures to his forecast area and threatens heavy snow a day or two later.

The northeast part of the state could see a foot or more of new snow, with very strong winds creating near whiteout conditions.  Here's more from Travis Tarver with the National Weather Service in Aberdeen:
