The storm is expected late Tuesday through Wednesday evening. Forecasters say a quarter inch of ice or more is possible.

In Sioux Falls, Public Works Director Mark Cotter says crews plan to start putting salt and chemicals on the roads before the storm hits. If the storm stays on track, highway department workers will begin 12-hour shifts early Wednesday.
