Fresh coat of snow creates slippery conditions in the metro

Updated: January 13, 2020 05:50 AM

Twin Cities drivers may want to plan for a longer commute Monday morning.

There were several spinouts and crashes throughout the metro early Monday due to slick road conditions after fresh snow fell in the metro area overnight.


KSTP Traffic Reporter Josie Smith advised planning for a longer drive as a result.

Meanwhile, Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said Monday is expected to be mostly cloudy with temperatures in the 30s. A new batch of snow is likely Monday night, with another 1-3 inches expected before snowfall tapers off Tuesday morning.

Another burst of light snow is expected Wednesday, Barlow added.
