MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – If you had to go to work Friday morning, chances are your commute took longer than normal and it was a little slippery.

The Twin Cities metro received anywhere from one to three inches of snow between Thursday night and Friday morning, causing headaches for early commuters. Plows from the Minnesota Department of Transportation were out to clear the major highways, but ramps and side streets were still pretty sloppy and slick.

There were several accidents Friday morning, but none have been reported serious or fatal at this point.

The snowfall has been pretty light, but conditions are still slippery at this point so authorities are urging motorists to drive with caution at least until the snow leaves the metro area.

Check out the video above for Holly Wagner’s report from west of the metro early Friday morning.
