Snow ending; roads snow covered and slippery

Posted:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- It was rain on Saturday, but now another late-season winter storm has dumped more snow on southeastern Minnesota, making for a tricky morning commute.

While the heaviest snow has come and gone, light snow will continue for the next several hours and travel still remains difficult across much of the region. Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories continue to be in effect for the entire area until mid-morning.

The KTTC Precision Weather team says we've seen 7-inches of snow here at KTTC, with 6.8 inches reported at Rochester Internation Airport and in Winona. In Austin, 4.5 inches of snow was reported.

During the height of the storm late Sunday night, snow rates were exceeding 1" of accumulation per hour in many spots.  In addition, thunder and lightning were observed in several areas across the region.

With the snow, schools have delayed their start, or cancelled classes altogether. (Get the complete list of cancellations and closings HERE)

MnDOT says most of the roads in our region are in difficult driving condition this morning.

We'll keep you updated on KTTC NewsCenter Today and at Noon. You can also download the KTTC Precision Weather app for your mobile phone to track the snow into your neighborhood.
