Although snow is no longer falling – save for a few morning flurries – people should still prepare for slick main roads, snow-packed residential roads and lingering snowplows as snow emergencies continue in some cities.

You may need to keep your vehicle off the streets a while longer or move your vehicle to a different side of the road, depending on where you live.

A City of Minneapolis representative tells 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS the city issued 770 tickets and towed 220 vehicles during the first day of its snow emergency.

In St. Paul, city officials say 849 citations were issued, and 251 vehicles were towed.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Chief Meteorologist Ken Barlow says the affliction of the day will be high winds at 35-40 mph, which is likely to cause blowing snow.

Temperatures are expected to remain cold and drop into Wednesday night, eventually hitting a low of 8 degrees with a windchill in the zero-to-5-degrees-below-zero range.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS traffic reporter Hanna Conway says roads are still slick in many places. People should continue to drive slowly, watch for packed snow and ice, and steer clear of snowplows as workers hit less-traveled streets.

In the 24 hours from 6 a.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday, there were 408 crashes on Minnesota state highways, according to reports posted on Twitter by Minnesota State Patrol Lt. Gordon Shank. As of Wednesday morning, the Wisconsin State Patrol has not posted total numbers on Twitter.

The breakdown is as follows: 139 crashes from 6-10 a.m. Tuesday, 169 crashes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, 79 crashes from 4-9 p.m. Tuesday, and 21 crashes from 9 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Those Minnesota crashes resulted in 42 injuries, but Shank says none were life-threatening.

These totals exclude crashes that happened on city streets, as those reports would be handled by individual city agencies.
