Slow Moving Traffic As Snow, Freezing Ice Fall

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The freezing rain that started falling Sunday has transitioned into snow and made for a messy and slow commute Monday.

Patches of ice are covered by snow on the roads and sidewalks. That has caused nearly 100 spin-outs on the highways.

WCCO Meteorologist Mike Augustyniak said many cars are coated with a layer of ice under the snow.

Augustyniak said snowfall should remain steady through the morning and won’t wrap up in the Twin Cities until noon.

He said the metro can expect between 0.5-1 inches before the snow stops.

Snow may end a little later in the afternoon for the towns further east and in Wisconsin.

Augustyniak reminds motorists to adjust your speed and give the cars ahead of you room in case they need to make a quick stop.

MnDOT plows are out treating streets and they remind drivers to keep their distance as they are working.

State troopers said to be extra cautious on bridges and ramps because those tend to be the slickest spots.
