The burst of March snow this morning made it a difficult commute for some, or at least a slow one.  How was your drive? 

School bus drivers in the Baltic area have had to change their routes because of the flooding.  Our Hailey Higgins went for a ride-along, which is now longer for students because of the detours. 

 The James River is up in Mitchell and flooding roads. You can see the latest ones closed on our Flooding In KELOLAND map.  David Brown is headed there today to find out what homeowners can expect next.

As for what we could see over the weekend, Jon Wilson is talking with emergency managers in Minnehaha County today to find out what we could expect with the weather and river levels.

And Sioux Falls School District employees are expected to find out by the end of the day how much their pay will be cut because of cuts in state funding for education.  Katie Janssen will have those details.
