Morning commuters are dealing with roads completely covered in snow across the southern half of Minnesota.

Dozens of spinouts were already being reported at 6:30 a.m. as drivers find challenging conditions on the roads as they made their way to work.

Most of the early incidents are happening in southern Minnesota, with Hwy. 14 seeing multiple spinouts on the stretch between Mankato and Waseca.

And incidents are starting to roll in as the snow continues to fall in the Twin Cities metro, with spinouts and crashes reported on U.S. 10 at Blaine, I-35E at Lino Lakes, MN 77 at Apple Valley, and Hwy. 169 at Edina, among others.

Conditions are expected to get worse too, with schools canceled across the metro because up to an inch of snow per hour could fall during the morning commute.

On the plus side, no school will at least mean fewer cars on the roads, and it's looking like traffic isn't as bad as it could be.

But at the very least you won't be able to drive as quickly into work as usual, so drivers are being advised to give themselves extra time before leaving, and check traffic conditions on Minnesota 511.

It should go without saying that motorists are advised to drive for the conditions, and turn their headlights on.

This story will be updated with any major traffic updates as they come in.
