Nate Minor of MPR News in Moorhead reports:

"Snow started falling heavily at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday in Fargo-Moorhead. Visibility is poor and road conditions are treacherous, but traffic cams show commuters still making their daily drives."

MNDOT's Kevin Gutknchect told MPR News reporter Elizabeth Stawicki that

"...if folks are traveling from the metro area north to Duluth or northwest to Fargo Moorhead area, they're going to encounter difficult conditions. Along the 94 corridor, there are places where we're actually advising no travel. There's a lot of snow, there's a great deal of snow there. Our plows are out and clearing the roadways but it's going to take time."
