The Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect in Sioux Falls on Tuesday morning until around 6 PM Tuesday evening. This impending snowfall will affect drivers in their morning and evening commutes. On top of the snow on the roads, drivers can expect icy conditions. Here is the official report on road conditions from the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls:

Plan on slippery road conditions. Patchy blowing
  snow could significantly reduce visibility. The hazardous
  conditions could impact the morning or evening commute.

How much snow will Sioux Falls see on Tuesday?

Depending on where you live, residents can see between 2 to 4 inches of snow. Luckily, Sioux Falls appears to be right in between two snow bands in the area. The heavier amounts of snow looks like it will further north of Sioux Falls near Mitchell and further south towards Sioux City.

The official report on the Winter Weather Advisory from the National Weather in Sioux Falls does a great job describing what Sioux Empire residents can expect on Tuesday:

Mixed precipitation expected. Total snow accumulations
  of 2 to 4 inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze. Winds
  gusting as high as 35 mph.

* WHERE...Portions of northwest Iowa, southwest Minnesota,
  northeast Nebraska and southeast South Dakota.

On the bright side, the rest of the week looks pretty decent after the first official snow of the season in the Sioux Empire.

Remember when you're driving during the day on Tuesday, be patient with other drivers. Some people just forget how to drive in the snow. Take your time, leave earlier to get to your destination, and remain calm.
