Monday storm leaves a mark in west central Minnesota


Light powdery snow, falling temperatures and a persistent 15 mph wind made for some difficult driving conditions Monday in west central Minnesota.

The Minnesota State Patrol reported more than 200 crashes statewide on Monday morning, and most of the southern part of the state was under a winter storm warning or a winter weather advisory. The storm warning was ending Monday night, but the weather advisory continues through 6 p.m. today.
