Officials have closed more portions of major interstates as weather conditions worsen over the central and eastern part of the state.

Officials have closed Interstate 90 to travel from Exit 395 at Sioux Falls to Exit 110 at Wall, and I-29 is closed from Exit 84 at Sioux Falls to the North Dakota Line. Interstate 29 is also closed in North Dakota from the state border to Fargo.

Most highways from Pine Ridge to Wall to Mitchell and Nebraska to North Dakota along 281 are hazardous.

Highways with no travel advisories issued by the South Dakota Department of Transportation include most of south central, central and northeast South Dakota. 

Falling snow and strong winds are combining to create snow-packed and slippery roads, with sometimes heavy drifting and near-zero visibility. The winds are forecast to continue throughout Sunday and into Monday morning, and conditions are unlikely to improve soon.
