A light dusting of snow across the Twin Cities metro has resulted in numerous crashes and spinouts on Wednesday morning.

Although less than an inch has fallen in the Twin Cities, with the south metro getting most of it, it's proven enough to make conditions challenging during the morning commute.

This was the state of things at 6:45 a.m., with crashes and vehicles off the road being reported particularly in the eastern and southern metro.

I-94, I-494, and Hwy. 169 seem to be the worst affected early on, and drivers have been advised to give themselves extra time to get to work.

West St. Paul Police Department shared a picture of its incident log from this morning, showing more than a dozen no-injury accidents.

The conditions on the roads in southeastern Minnesota are even more challenging, with parts of the I-90 corridor seeing up to 4 inches of snow, the largest snowfall of the season so far.

Spinouts are being reported on Hwy. 52 between Rochester and the Twin Cities as a result.

The National Weather Service says that the snow should taper off and leave Minnesota by mid-morning.
