It's slippery out there this morning.
Several crashes have been reported in the metro area thanks to some freezing drizzle overnight and early Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service in the Twin Cities says. Roads that have been treated are mainly just wet, but side roads, ramps and sidewalks are quite slick, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation's road conditions website.
Meanwhile, roads in the Northland are completely covered in snow after Duluth picked up at least 2.2 inches of snow overnight, the National Weather Service in Duluth tweeted.
More snow is expected in northern Minnesota through this afternoon, where there's a winter weather advisory in effect until late afternoon and early evening. The National Weather Service says a second wave of snow will move into the area late Tuesday morning, and by the afternoon east-central Minnesota could pick up another inch or two of snow.
Even more snow is expected in Minnesota's arrowhead, where snowfall totals are forecast to be about half a foot, perhaps more in localized areas.
Temperatures in northern Minnesota Tuesday are in the single digits and teens, while southern Minnesota is seeing more mild weather, with temps in the mid-20s to mid-30s, the National Weather Service says.
As always with the weather in Minnesota, temperatures drop after it snows. And that'll be the case this week, too. Lows are forecast to be between 10-20 below zero in northern Minnesota, while single-digit lows are expected in the southern part of the state.
It'll warm up again for the weekend, though. Temperatures Friday could top 50 degrees in the southern part of the state.
