The Minnesota State Patrol reported 85 crashes, 11 with injuries, in the metro and 22 vehicle spin outs. Across the state there were 115 crashes, 15 with injuries, and 38 vehicle spin outs. 

The National Weather Service recorded 0.8 inches of snow fell at Minneapolis-St.Paul International Airport. Other parts of the metro saw over an inch of snow, with 1.3 inches recorded in Eden Prairie, 1.2 in Golden Valley and 2.5 in Woodbury.
