WILLMAR -- Difficult driving conditions continue to be reported as snowfall amounts accumulate in the region.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation reports difficult conditions on roadways in Swift, Pope, Stevens, Big Stone and Douglas counties, as well as fair to difficult conditions on roads in Kandiyohi, Meeker, Chippewa, Lac qui Parle, Renville and Yellow Medicine counties.

As much as 8 inches have been unofficially recorded in the Willmar area.
