A winter storm dusted most of Minnesota with snow Sunday evening and Monday morning. A round of freezing rain followed that, making roads slick. To top it off, strong winds have caused blowing snow, further endangering drivers.
The National Weather Service recorded 6 inches of snow in Moorhead, and 1-3 more inches are possible Tuesday when another storm will move through.
