Spring is here and thunderstorms won’t be far behind. Some have already heard them, but Meteorologist Brian Karstens says we could get more beginning after 10 p.m. Monday.

In our morning meeting today, he said any rain we do get could really throw flooding predictions out of whack. So local officials and our meteorologists will be monitoring that closely.

As we’ve been reporting, several counties have already declared no travel advisories. Erich Schaffhauser is in Beadle County today to show you the road conditions.

Brian Karstens also said this morning that we could begin to see moderate to major flooding north to Brookings. That’s where Nicole Winters is today to show you how they’re preparing up there.

Senator Tim Johnson is also meeting with the National Weather Service, Army Corps of Engineers and FEMA today to go over possible preparations for flooding. Our Jon Wilson will also be at the meeting to bring you the discussion.
