Overnight snow made for some slick conditions Tuesday morning in parts of the metro, and also led to some more crashes.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, 68 crashes were reported from 5 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Fortunately, none of those resulted in serious injuries or any fatalities, but five people were injured.


In addition to the crashes, the state satrol reported 47 vehicles either spun-out or went off the road during that timeframe.

Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said wind is expected to increase Tuesday afternoon and temperatures are expected to drop into the teens. Another small burst of snow is expected Wednesday, with another 1-3 inches expected.
