RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Spring snowstorms continue to set records in the Dakotas.

The National Weather Service says a system dropped 3.4 inches of snow at the Rapid City, S.D., airport Tuesday, surpassing the 1960 record for the date of 3.3 inches.

The storm in western, central and northern South Dakota could dump as much as 15 inches of snow by Thursday. Many schools in the Rapid City are closed or starting late.

The system also is bringing snow to southern North Dakota.

A storm in South Dakota last week dropped up to 2 ½ feet of snow and brought freezing rain to the east, cutting power to nearly 100,000 people. Sioux Falls is still in recovery mode.

A weekend storm dropped a record 17.3 inches of snow on Bismarck, N.D. Snow removal continues.
