Snow piles up in Alexandria
High winds and snow cause poor road conditions for Douglas County
Snow and wind create poor road conditions across Douglas County and much of the state as a winter weather advisory stays in effect until noon on Monday, Dec. 27.
According to The Weather Channel's website, five to 12 inches accumulated in west-central and central Minnesota overnight, causing reduced visibility due to blowing snow — with winds up to 40 miles per hour — and slippery road conditions.
"We picked up 4 inches with the first round and then 8.5 inches with this latest round," said Alexandria Meteorologist Mark Anthony.
A winter weather advisory for Douglas County is still in effect until noon today, Monday, Dec. 27.
