The morning commute in southern Minnesota will be on the rough side due to the wet

Minnesota Department of Transportation

Snowfall totals in most of southeast Minnesota are in the 1 - 2 inch range but it is very slushy and MNDOT is rating driving conditions as difficult. A section of Highway 52 between Cannon Falls and Zumbrota was described as a mess earlier this morning as two semi-trucks and some cars ended up in the median. Several school districts in this area are opening late due to slick roads.

As had been forecast, some of the heaviest snow fell in the Twin Cities with totals as high as 11 inches. And it’s still snowing. The snow is expected to end later today. The new snow is not expected to stay around very long as a warming trend will develop over the next few days. High temps in the Rochester area could be in the upper 50’s and low 60’s by the middle of next week.
