The Minnesota Department of Transportation reports difficult driving conditions across much of the southern two-thirds of the state, with no travel advised in the Willmar area of west-central Minnesota.
MnDOT spokesman Kevin Gutknecht says the agency has pulled its plows off the roads in the Granite Falls, Madison, Marshall and Montevideo areas of southwestern Minnesota until conditions improve.
The Minnesota State Patrol reported about 300 crashes statewide from Saturday night through noon Sunday, with more than 30 involving injuries, but no fatalities. Lt. Eric Roeske also reports more than 300 spinouts or vehicles off the road.
More than 150 flights at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport have been canceled due to the storm.
