Twin Cities spared, but southern Minnesota roads are slick after overnight snow

Roads are slick in southern Minnesota, although the Twin Cities was spared.
Publish date:

The snow has ended across southern Minnesota and it largely missed the Twin Cities, with the exception of dusting to an inch of accumulation in the southern suburbs. 

The heaviest snow fell along and south of the Minnesota River, where 4-5 inches has been reported in places like Redwood Falls, Springfield and Canby. 

Where the snow fell, roads are slick and partially to completely covered in snow this morning. Highways should be in pretty good condition because MnDOT had plows out all night, but the back roads are a bit treacherous, as evidenced in the photo at the top of the story. 

Moving ahead, the sun will come out Saturday but temps will be chilly with a daytime high in the Twin Cities of just 25 degrees, and overnight lows into Sunday morning dropping into the low teens and single digits. It'll be even colder in the Northland, with a high of 18 in Duluth and a low dropping to around five degrees. 

Another clipper slides through Minnesota Sunday night into Monday and could bring an inch or two of snow to northern Minnesota, but nothing major is in the works and temperatures could climb back into the 40s in time for Thanksgiving.
