Winter Storm Complicates Driving Conditions

As a winter storm moves through the state, the Minnesota Department of Transportation is reporting difficult driving conditions, reported the Pioneer Press.

While a few spinouts have been reported Lt. Mark Peterson, a spokesman with the State Patrol, said the lack of any serious accidents have been "a pleasant surprise." Sunday conditions are particularly important as college students drive home for the holidays, reported the Star Tribune.

In the western and some northwestern parts of the state, major roads have been closed including Interstate 94 between Moorhead and Alexandria and Highway 10 between Moorhead and Detroit Lakes.

Temperatures in the metro area are expected to drop as the storm passes through.

With bad weather expected into Monday, authorities are advising people to stay inside and avoid traveling.
