Roads and freeways are covered with snow, KSTP reports. Driving conditions are worsening as snow continues make a blustery blitz across the state. Snow was expected to accumulate at a rate of about a half-inch per hour through rush hour, the Star Tribune reported.

Travel is especially treacherous in west-central Minnesota, where there is a blizzard warning, the Associated Press reports.

Among the road closures overnight in western Minnesota: Interstate 94 from Moorhead to Alexandria; Highway 10 from Moorhead to Audubon; and Highway 210 from Breckenridge to Fergus Falls. You can follow more from MnDOT about crashes and traffic snares on the department's traffic Twitter feed.

A number of school districts were closed or had delayed openings Monday morning.

As much as 6-8 inches of snow is expected in northwestern Minnesota. The Twin Cities will get about 1-3 inches, with parts seeing between 3-6 inches, WCCO reported.

KARE 11 says the snow is coming in a three-hour burst for the Twin Cities (right during the commute), but snow will linger in northern parts of the state much of the day:
