Roads in the Twin Cities are slick this morning and they're worse in parts of western Minnesota thanks to some overnight snow and freezing rain. 

The National Weather Service-Twin Cities has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for most of the state everywhere west of a line from Little Falls to Willmar to Fairmont. 

"A mixture of snow and freezing rain will continue before turning to rain later this afternoon. Ice accumulations of a tenth of an inch and snow accumulations up to 2 inches are expected which will create difficult travel conditions."

There have already been plenty of slowdowns on Twin Cities-area roads Monday morning, including a couple of crashes on I-94 eastbound near Albertville that had traffic at a standstill by 6 a.m. 

Here's a good look at what the driving conditions in Bloomington were like overnight while heavy, wet snow fell. 

Snow and rain will continue throughout the day with most of the precipitation in the metro falling as rain.
