KSTP Chief Morning Meterologist Ken Barlow said temperatures hovered in the mid-teens.

The wind gusts that blew across the metro Tuesday have died down, Barlow said, and the sun is expected to make an appearance Wednesday morning before clouds roll in. A few flurries are expected to develop in the afternoon, Barlow added.

Meanwhile, the morning commute began with relatively clear roads.

KSTP Traffic Reporter Josie Smith reported crews worked to remove cones from northbound Interstate 35W near Lake Street. The right lane had been blocked off overnight for road work.

 

 

A crash occurred just before 7 a.m. on in the area of Highway 120 and southbound Century Avenue near Interstate 94.

 

 

Looking ahead, for those planning to use Metro Transit on Thursday and Friday, buses and trains are on holiday schedules and there will be reduced service on Friday.
