Snow that fell late Sunday into the overnight hours has left road conditions a little less than ideal as Minnesotans head to work Monday morning. 

According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, all of the major arteries in the Twin Cities are partially covered in snow. While road conditions are horrendous, slick spots will likely make for a slightly more difficult morning commute. 

As of 6:50 a.m., there were a handful of crashes in the metro, with the slowest conditions from Interstate 694 westbound to southbound Hwy. 100.
