Light snow continued to fall in the metro Saturday morning, creating slick driving conditions.

The fresh coat of snow over the snow already packed down on the roads created slippery side streets. Freeways around the Twin Cities were snow covered in some areas.

There were reports of several crashes and spin outs. Meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas said about an inch of snow fell in the metro overnight, with another inch falling through noon. Temps will stick in the mid teens with some peaks of sunshine for the afternoon.

Overnight temps are expected to fall to 2 below zero.

Sunday will start out partly cloudy then increasing clouds in the afternoon, said Jonathan. 

Highs will be near 9 above, with light and variable winds. Sunday evening will be cloudy with light snow developing after midnight. The low temperature by Monday morning will be near 7 above in the metro.
