The National Weather Service says that a fast-moving storm system is likely to trek across South Dakota and into the Great Lakes area this weekend, dumping 2 to 5 inches of snow in parts of west-central Minnesota on Saturday.

In a special statement issued today, the NWS says gusty winds will accompany the system, creating blowing and drifting snow conditions.

High pressure building in rapidly behind the system suggests that winds will diminish during the evening hours Saturday, according to the special weather statement. Cold air will follow this system for the rest of the weekend, bringing with it temperatures in the 20s.
