The bitter cold has been enough of an obstacle for many Minnesotans, but the light snow that fell across the metro made for some slick roads that saw slow traffic weaving around several spinouts and crashes.
The Minnesota State Patrol has responded to at least 313 crashes statewide since 9 a.m.
The slow traffic clogged slick metro roads before the evening commute officially began, and at least 39 crashes were reported between noon and 3 p.m. alone.
Troopers urge drivers to increase driving distance between cars and slow down as conditions require. Even on roads that appeared relatively clear, slick spots were still found under overpasses, on bridges and on corners.
One Fox 9 viewer sent in dash-cam footage of a 360-degree spinout on Highway 100 that ended without a crash; however, several other motorists weren't so lucky.
