CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — Parts of southern Minnesota are dealing with more than 10 inches of new snow.
The deep spot is Mapleton in Blue Earth County where 10½ inches had fallen by Wednesday morning. St. James in Watonwan County has 9½ inches of fresh snow.
Dozens of schools have delayed the start of classes by two hours, giving plow drivers a chance to clear the roads. New Ulm, Blue Earth Area, Marshall and Waseca are among school districts with a late start.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation is reporting difficult travel conditions across southern Minnesota.
