…Wet to Snow Covered And Slippery Roads Continue Late This Morning…

As of 1015 am, the band of moderate to occasionally heavy snow,
with snowfall rates of 1/2 to 1 inch per hour, was mainly over
central into north central Wisconsin. Visibilities as low as 1/4
mile were occurring in some of this snow.

The snow was tapering off across parts of southeast Minnesota and
northeast Iowa, mainly west of a Rochester to New Hampton line.
Roads across the area varied from wet where the snow had let up a
bit or road crews had treated, to snow covered and slippery in the
heavier snowfall areas or road crews had yet to treat.

Another 1 to locally 2 inches of snow are possible east of the
Mississippi River before the snow starts to taper off around noon.
additional snow amounts west of the Mississippi River will mainly
be 1/2 inch or less. Use caution if traveling this morning and be
sure to allow yourself some extra time to reach your destination.
