KSTP.com traffic reporter Rusty Gatenby says the roadways are in good condition Wednesday after a late-season snowstorm hit Minnesota.

This was the largest March storm in six years for Minnesota.

KSTP.com Meteorologist Patrick Hammer said we picked up 9.3 inches, bringing our seasonal snow total above normal. He said we are at 44.8 inches. The average is 43.8 inches.

At this time last year, snow had finished falling for the season and we were below average with a total of 22 inches.

The sky will be slow to clear Wednesday with highs hovering near 30 making for a fairly quiet day.

Patrick said we are in for another storm for the weekend, which could bring rain and snow Saturday.

Patrick said this rain will soak into the snow, but it will also cause some decent runoff.
