Blowing and drifting snow with gusty winds are Friday's concerns as the sky clears to some sunshine and temperatures stay in the chilly teens with subzero wind chills.

STATE PATROL: DON'T TRAVEL

The Minnesota State Patrol is advising no travel throughout much of the state due to snow-and-ice-covered roads.

"We're receiving reports from veteran troopers in several areas of the state of conditions that are as bad as they've seen in 25 years," said State Patrol Lt. Col. Matt Langer. "We need motorists to avoid traveling unless it's absolutely necessary. It is simply too dangerous right now and MnDOT needs room to clear the roads of snow and ice."

Gov. Mark Dayton has issued an emergency executive order to allow the National guard to assist stranded drivers.

Since 2 p.m. Thursday, the State Patrol responded to 404 crashes statewide, including 32 with injuries and one fatal crash. Troopers also responded to more than 1,300 spinouts.
