White enough for ya? The snow dumped over the weekend across the Twin Cities and much of Minnesota will hang around as some seriously cold temperatures are on the way.

More than 9 inches of snow had fallen in some parts of the metro area by the end of Sunday, with the Chanhassen weather station measuring 9.1 inches and Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport 7.1 inches.

The National Weather Service says the metro area can expect about another inch of snow on Monday evening, and the snowpack will stick around because Minnesota is about to get even colder this week.

Wind chills early on Thursday morning could drop as low as 30-below in some parts of the state, while air temperatures in the low single digits expected on Wednesday in the Twin Cities, dropping below zero on Thursday.

There's a chance of another big dump of snow, again affecting the southern half, particularly the southeastern corner of the state, starting Friday into Saturday.

NWS models suggest there's a chance of accumulations of more than six inches over the two days.

In the Twin Cities, snow emergencies remain in place in both Minneapolis and St. Paul, which will last until 8 p.m. on Tuesday. You can find plowing schedules for Minneapolis here, and St. Paul here.

The Minnesota State Patrol says there were 736 reported crashes in the Twin Cities metro between 9 a.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday, of which 282 involved vehicles spinning out. There were 78 reported injuries, but no fatalities.
