MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After our coldest Halloween in 15 years, much of central Minnesota is under a winter advisory until 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Snow moved into the Metro area right around 2 p.m. and it picked up in intensity and coverage quickly. Road conditions remained clear, with most of the accumulation on grass and trees.
Two to four inches of snow is possible in the north and east metro, throughout the evening.
The Minnesota State Patrol responded to several reports of crashes and vehicles off the road in central and northern Minnesota. Earlier Wednesday morning, the area of Highway 10 from Hawley to Wadena and Highway 59 from Pelican Rapids to Detroit Lakes were having the most issues.
Along the North Shore of Lake Superior, 4 to 6 inches of snow is possible.
Thursday is expected to be mostly cloudy, but dry. Another round of snow is expected Friday morning — up to 4 inches in the Twin Cities.
