WILLMAR -- Motorists in southwestern Minnesota are encountering difficult travel conditions this evening as blowing and drifting snow leave icy patches on area highways.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation's 511 Traveler Information website for traffic and road conditions shows difficult driving conditions in several areas. Spin-outs have been reported, and visibility is reduced in some areas as ground drifting is obscuring the roadway. Most traffic is traveling at reduced speeds.
MnDOT crews are out putting down chemical.
