Wild Night for the Rockies: Heavy Spring Snow and Tornadoes

A late-season snow fell in parts of the Rockies, western Nebraska and western South Dakota Saturday night as part of a storm system that also spawned tornadoes across the Great Pains and Texas.
National Weather Service meteorologist Kyle Carstens said between 10 and 18 inches of snow was on the ground Sunday morning in the Black Hills. The total snowfall could reach 20 to 24 inches by the time the system moves out.
Rapid City, South Dakota, had 8 to 11 inches, accompanied by 20-30 mph winds.
