Overnight snow leaves southern Minnesota with slippery roads

People south of the Twin Cities woke up with less than favorable road conditions after measurable snow fell overnight. 

Multiple cities received several inches of snow including Austin with 6.1 inches, Rochester 3.7 inches, and Decorah, Iowa with 4.2 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service. 

Most of the roadways by Rochester, Albert Lea, and Mankato were completely covered in snow and/or ice, leading to several reported crashes, spin-outs and jackknifed semi-trucks like the one on I-35 southbound near Faribault Friday morning.
