RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — From summer-like temperatures to a winter storm warning, the weather in western South Dakota has been all over the map in recent days.

The National Weather Service in Rapid City has issued a winter storm warning for 6 inches or more of snow Tuesday in the higher elevations of the Black Hills.

The weather service expected snow over the Black Hills to taper off Tuesday night.

While higher amount of snow are possible near the foothills, Rapid City is expected to get anywhere from a dusting to 2 inches.
