Update 2:30 p.m.
The snow hitting the Twin Cities right now is heavier than forecast after the storm system shifted north.
Those who have already experienced heavy snowfall might be in for even more intense bands of snow. According to MPR Weather, "prolific" rates of 2-3 inches an hour are working their into the southern suburbs.
Areas of southeast Minnesota have already seen 15 inches and final accumulations could be as high as 18 inches.
The fast-falling snow led to the closure of all four runways at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, though two have since reopened.
Overall, the snowfall totals could still vary wildly across the Twin Cities metro area.
Heavy snow has arrived in Minnesota, causing significant problems for commuters in the south and southeast of the state as it slowly moves north.
It's finding its way to the Twin Cities Monday morning, though there's a steep gradient in play that could see parts of the metro get as little as 1-2 inches and parts in the south getting 8-12 inches.
Affected areas will find snow falling rapidly, at a rate of 1-2 inches per hour, hampering visibility.
Parts of southern Minnesota could get as much as 14 inches.
What will happen the rest of the day?
The snow will continue throughout Monday, but fortunately for Twin Cities workers it didn't affect the morning commute.
Those in the south of the state were less lucky though, with covered roads leading to multiple spinouts and crashes across the region.
Here's how the roads looked at 8:15 a.m., with roads marked by pink considered "completely covered" with snow, with blue roads "partially covered."
This afternoon, however, things could get seriously dicey in the Twin Cities, with the National Weather Service saying the evening commute will be made even worse by blowing snow.
KARE 11 has a full list of more than 150 school closures and delays, which you can find here.
It includes some in the south metro area, though most schools in Minneapolis and St. Paul should open as normal.
