Bands of snow and mixed precipitation are proving to be one last hurrah (maybe!) from Old Man Winter and they are causing headaches on the roads Monday morning. 

The immediate Twin Cities and points south are dealing with mostly wet roads at this point (8:40 a.m.), but anywhere along and north of Interstate 694 could be problematic as roads are covered in snow and crashes are mounting.

You can see in the MnDOT traffic map from 8:30 a.m. (above) that there are numerous crashes and spinouts as the snow falls and creates slippery road conditions. And this is a bit more than a nuisance dusting of snow. 

Meteorologist Todd Nelson tweeted a photo of 3 inches of snow in St. Michael. 

As of 8:35 a.m., it was mostly snow falling in the north metro while a band of rain and snow was sliding into the south metro.

The St. Michael area was forecast to get 1-2 inches, according to the National Weather Service, so the amounts are already overachieving the NWS prediction.
