Twin Cities road conditions remain slick following winter storm

1 min read

The Twin Cities metro remains covered in a thick fresh blanket of snow following Tuesday’s storm that dumped over six inches in many areas, and more snow is expected overnight.

As the first winter storm of 2023 rolls through the state it left much of the metro with icy and snow covered roads, making after work transportation difficult for many drivers.

According to weather reports, today’s total is expected to surpass 8 inches with another 5+ inches expected tomorrow.

Crews are still responding to accidents while plows slowly remove the snow. Earlier Wednesday afternoon the Minnesota State Patrol reported over 70 vehicle crashes, four with injuries, 472 vehicle spinouts and 6 jackknifed semis.

A no travel advisory was issued for southern Minnesota but has since been lifted. The Minnesota Department of Transportation said that conditions remain challenging across the state.

Snowy conditions will remain overnight into Wednesday morning with 5+ more inches expected.
