Snow makes for slow Tuesday AM commute in the metro

February 12, 2019 10:20 AM

Snowfall Tuesday morning meant metro area drivers' travel times were much longer.

Early-morning slowdowns were reported along Interstate 694 in Little Canada, Interstate 35W in Blaine, and Interstate 394 in Minnetonka.

KSTP Reporter Ashley Zilka reported snow had decreased visibility and was making driving more difficult.

Although Minnesota Department of Transportation sent plows out Tuesday, rapid snowfall made it difficult to keep up with clearing the roads.

Metro Transit reported delays Tuesday morning as well.

Drivers are advised to travel metro area highways and side streets with caution and to plan for extra driving time Tuesday.

Although MPS and SPPS officials reported schools would be open Tuesday, officials in both districts said there is the chance of bus delays.

Meanwhile, KSTP Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said snow will continue to fall Tuesday morning, with another 2-4 inches possible before the snow tapers off in the afternoon. Drifting snow is possible Tuesday afternoon as the wind picks up, Barlow said.
