(ABC 6 News) – Another round of winter weather has arrived bringing with it bad driving conditions.

There have been multiple reports of accidents, cars in the ditch and spin outs.

The snowdrift was so bad it covered the road and made visibility difficult for drivers.

There were several spin outs on Highway 63 close to the Rochester International Airport.

Driving conditions on Highway 52 between Rochester and Chatfield was not any better either.
