Schools are closed and travel conditions are fair


WILLMAR –– Many schools in the region are closed this morning and state and county highway crews are out in force to clear snow and lay down salt and sand on slippery, snow-compacted roads as gusty northwest winds keep buffing the ice.

On top of that, the wind chill is around 20 below.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation said roads in west central Minnesota are in difficult or – at best –  fair driving condition.
