A video taken by a meteorologist in South Dakota and posted to social media on Wednesday exhibits twenty seconds of a daunting drive by means of a heavy blizzard.
A thick gray fills the view within the footage as Matthew Dux, a meteorologist on the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, drives down a highway, road lights, highway indicators and different automobiles solely showing at shut quarters.
“It is not great at all out there!” Dux mentioned within the Twitter put up accompanying the video, which he mentioned was taken south of the Sioux Falls airport. “Far too many people on the roads. No lights on, driving way too fast.”
It isn’t nice in any respect on the market! Far too many individuals on the roads. No lights on, driving approach too quick.

In one other Twitter put up, Dux posted a video of the snowfall coming down over homes and a kids’s swing set and slide, saying it confirmed massive flakes falling, with visibility at occasions lower than 100 ft (30.5 metres).
The Sioux Falls climate service reported a brand new file of snowfall on December 23, with 2.eight inches. The earlier file was 2.6 inches set again in 1987, the service mentioned, predicting dangerously chilly wind chills on Thursday.
“DO NOT TRAVEL!” was Dux’s agency warning to others caught within the inclement climate.
