It was a slow and sloppy Wednesday morning drive.

City streets and ramps were slush covered and slippery from the heavy and wet snow that fell overnight.

There were several reports of spinouts, some of the accidents closed exit ramps.

For the most part, main highways and freeways remained wet. There were some slippery spots that made driving tricky.

Snow is expected to be the heaviest Wednesday night and Thursday morning. That is expected to create difficult driving conditions once again.

Over a dozen rural school districts started classes two hours late and a few districts canceled classes due to slippery roads.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation reported difficult driving conditions across much of southwestern Minnesota, with fair driving conditions on some highways in southeastern Minnesota.
