ST. CLOUD – A Mid-April snowstorm is creating slippery roads and leading to crashes on Minnesota roads.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for parts of central Minnesota through 4:00 a.m. Thursday. Stearns, Benton, Todd, and Morrison counties are included in the warning.

Snow accumulation could be between six and eight inches for some areas. A narrow band of 10 to 12 inches is possible in northeastern Minnesota.

State Patrol Sergeant Jesse Grabow says the snow is leading to scattered slippery areas on the roads.
