SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Highway Patrol has closed Interstate 29 from Exit 73 at Tea south to the Iowa border as a winter storm moves into the southeastern part of the state.

Schools throughout the region are shut down for the day, and state offices in Bon Homme, Clay, Lincoln, Minnehaha, Turner, Union and Yankton counties closed at noon.

The National Weather Service posted a blizzard warning through Tuesday for the Sioux Falls, Yankton and Vermillion areas. The Mitchell and Huron areas are under a winter weather advisory.

Snowfall totals could reach a foot in the far southeast, with 6-8 inches in Sioux Falls and 2-4 inches in areas to the west and northwest of the city.

Forecasters say winds gusting to 45 mph will make travel hazardous if not impossible.
