SNOW TOTALS: April snow continues in Minnesota

- The second round of sloppy, wet April snow is continuing to fall in Minnesota. While some school district are on spring break, others are taking an unplanned break with more than 100 school closings listed at fox9.com/closings.

Over the last 24 hours, there have been a total of 421 crashes and 402 spin outs, with 32 injuries. According to the State Patrol, since the snow began Monday evening, 15 semis had jackknifed, too.

Here's a look at the snow totals in the Twin Cities metro as of Tuesday evening: 

MSP Airport: 8.2"
Lakeville: 8.7"
Eden Prairie: 8.5"
Prior Lake: 8.0"
Burnsville: 7.8"
Richfield: 7.5"
Edina: 7.4"
Rochester: 6.8" 

TUESDAY FORECAST: In and out of sloppy snow with heavier bursts at times late morning into early afternoon. Warm roads and ground make measuring at the end problematic, but this certainly makes the morning and evening commute slow and slippery. Snow leaves late Tuesday evening with clearing sky and cold temps Tuesday night. from Fox 9 meteorologist Keith Marler

TWINS HOME OPENER: The coldest Minnesota Twins home opener was 33 degrees on April 14, 1962, though Thursday's game at Target Field is set to give that frigid afternoon a run for its money.
