RAPID CITY, South Dakota — A May snowstorm has dumped more than a foot of snow in South Dakota's Black Hills.

The National Weather Service says as of late Sunday afternoon, Lead reports 18 inches of snow, Deerfield 17 inches and downtown Rapid City 13.5 inches.

Snowfall in the Black Hills could total 2 feet by the time the system passes.

Meteorologist Kyle Carstens of the National Weather Service says the snow is not unusual for this time of year. He says this is the wettest time of the year for the Rapid City area, and temperatures have been hovering just below freezing.

But Carstens says the snow won't stay. Temperatures are expected to reach the 60s by mid-week.
