Minneapolis and St. Paul were not among the metro cities to declare a snow emergency on Sunday, but the city of St. Paul is asking residents to move their cars off the streets on Monday so they can clear the roads.
St. Paul had its plows and sanders out on all arterial routes Sunday night. Crews were able to complete their routes and get a start on residential streets, and they hope to finish side streets Monday and Tuesday with above-freezing temperatures.
Snow emergencies were declared Sunday in Bloomington and Golden Valley, and St. Louis Park banned street parking. Check with your city for specific parking rules during a snow event.
Freezing rain and snow fell on the Twin Cities mid-day Sunday through the evening. The weather created super-slick roads that caused multiple rollover crashes, spinouts and other incidents. See photos at http://bit.ly/123Rvq4
Overnight, the Minnesota State Patrol reported 35 crashes with one serious injury, 12 rollovers and 19 cars off the road.
MONDAY FORECAST: Foggy and gray with afternoon highs in the mild mid 30s. A little icy mix/snow rolls on in Monday evening as we barely dip below freezing with less than one inch of snow in the metro. MUCH colder by Wednesday!
