MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Department of Transportation says roads in the southeastern part of the state have cleared after a blast of winter weather dumped several inches of wet, heavy snow in some areas.

Wednesday’s snowfall also led several school districts in southern and southeastern Minnesota to cancel classes Thursday.

The National Weather Service says snow ended in southeastern Minnesota and central Wisconsin at 9 a.m. Thursday.

MnDOT says some roads may still be slick, and winds could cause blowing and drifting snow.

In the metro area, northern suburbs and places north of Interstate 94 got little to no snow, but southern suburbs were digging out Thursday. The National Weather Service says Savage got 12 inches of snow, while Burnsville got 11.5. Apple Valley got 9. Rochester, in southeast Minnesota, got 11.
