More snow came up from the southwest part of Minnesota and continued overnight, making for a slushy Monday commute.

Snow is expected to finally taper off around noon Monday.

Meteorologist Dave Dahl says we can expect to see snow totals of 8 to 12 inches in central parts of the state, 5 to 7 inches in the metro and 2 to 4 inches in southern parts of the state.

MnDOT closed roads in western areas of the state as blizzard conditions develop and winds pick up. Western Minnesota is hit hardest by the storm that dumped a foot of snow in the region and stranded motorists.
Several highways in the area are closed, including Interstate 94 from Alexandria to Moorhead, and Highways 10 210. Sheriff's deputies in Grant and Douglas counties assisted drivers who became stranded.

The State Patrol handled 326 crashes since Sunday morning, including 42 that involved injuries.

The Twin Cities can expect a high of 27 degrees Monday.
