Blowing and drifting snow is making for slippery roads in southern Minnesota


Overnight snowfall created some dangerous driving conditions in southern Minnesota Sunday morning, especially south of Interstate 90.

A coating of fresh snow in southern Minnesota was enough to make for unsafe driving conditions, especially when winds picked up and blew around all the snow.

Several churches in southern Minnesota were forced to cancel services Sunday morning due to the snow, KAAL reports.

Two more inches of snow could accumulate by the end of the day Sunday, KAAL notes.

Areas of the northland also got snow lake effect snow Saturday night into Sunday morning, the National Weather Service notes.

Many roads from the Twin Cities south were partially covered with snow, with some roads in southeastern Minnesota listed as completely covered on the Minnesota Department of Transportation's website.

Officials responded to several vehicles off the road and a few rollover crashes, but none involved serious injuries, Lt. Tiffani Neilson with the Minnesota State Patrol tweeted.

The storm that brought snow to southern Minnesota is hammering much of the Midwest, which has impacted flights at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

A spokesperson for MSP told WCCO that about 20 flights were canceled and about 26 were delayed – most of the flights affected were bound for Chicago.

And say goodbye to the spring-like weather we've been having for the past several days – winter is back. Temperatures in the Twin Cities aren't expected to get out of the teens Sunday, and that's the trend for much of this week.
