Freezing rain and snow overnight has led to crashes in the Twin Cities during the Thursday morning commute.
As of 7:10 a.m., the majority of roads across Minnesota were partially or completely covered in snow and/or ice, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
MnDOT's website showed numerous crashes in the Twin Cities metro Thursday morning, which is under a winter weather advisory until midnight Thursday.
Overnight, a semi-truck and a MnDOT snowplow crashed on Interstate 94 westbound at Keats Avenue in Woodbury, FOX 9's Greg Kellogg tweeted.
The crash happened around 1:35 a.m., closing the interstate until just after 6 a.m., the Star Tribune reports. No one was hurt.
The National Weather Service says the Twin Cities area could pick up 2-4 inches of snow, with snow ending in the late morning. The region could also see wind gusts as high as 40 mph Thursday, which could produce areas of blowing snow throughout the day and into the evening.
NWS warns of slippery road conditions and reduced visibility due to patchy blowing snow, with impacts expected for both the morning and evening commute.
After this bout of wintry weather, the temperature across the state will plummet, with wind chills as low as 15 below zero Thursday night, which can result in hypothermia, NWS says. Temps will get even colder over the weekend.
