MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The calendar may have turned to spring, but for many parts of Minnesota it's a return to winter's snow and ice.

By Monday morning nearly 9 inches of snow has fallen in southern Scott, Rice and Dakota counties.

Slick roads kept the Minnesota State Patrol busy with several hundred crashes and spinouts by Sunday night. Twenty people were injured in those accidents.

Forecasters say the heaviest snow hit the Twin Cities around dinner time Sunday at a rate of about 2 inches per hour. Temperatures in the metro area are forecast in the 40s this week, so any accumulation shouldn't be around long.
