Bottom Line: Looking ahead to the PM rush hour, it still appears it will be a messy and potentially slow commute. Plan accordingly for extra travel time through this evening.

There are a few breaks in the snow showing up on radar, while snow continues over much of southern Minnesota today. Here are some tools to track the storm through Midday, with an eye toward the PM commute.

-Latest snow totals

-Latest Twin Cities radar loop

-MNDOT live traffic cams and road info

It still looks like snowfall totals will end up somewhere in the 3″ to 6″ range for the metro by Tuesday morning. Higher totals between 6″ and 12″ could pile up in southern Minnesota along the Minnesota River and I-90 corridor.

Storm aims east:

Minnesota is just the appetizer for this massive storm. It looks like this massive system will make national headlines for the next two days. Snowfall totals could reach 1 to 2 FEET from near Chicago through Detroit to Upstate New York and Boston.
