Overnight snow has left roads in the Twin Cities completely covered, sparking early crashes and spinouts.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation's traffic map showed several ongoing incidents as of 6:15 a.m., including a crash on I-35W near Mounds View that was causing delays in the northern metro.
Other incidents were reported on I-494 and I-694, with blowing snow making already difficult conditions even more treacherous.
Anywhere between 2-6 inches of snow has fallen so far in the metro, with the National Weather Service saying it will continue on Monday morning, though less than an inch will fall.
The blowing snow will continue, particularly in western and central Minnesota, throughout the morning.
Minneapolis, Anoka-Hennepin and St. Paul public schools are among those that have canceled classes for the day.
Meanwhile, snow emergencies have been declared in suburbs including Bloomington, Brooklyn Park, Robbinsdale, St. Louis Park and West St. Paul, per the Star Tribune, though Minneapolis and St. Paul haven't yet declared one.
There have also been dozens of canceled departures from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, with Southwest, American and Air Canada among those canceling, though more Delta departures seem to be going ahead, albeit with some delays.
Monday morning's snow will be followed by plunging temperatures that over the next few days could see daytime highs drop into the 20s below, while wind chills will be pushing 50 below.
The looming freeze is leading to the possibility that Gov. Tim Walz will announce statewide school cancelations. You can read more about that here.
