UPDATE: Schools close as snow piles up
Snow-covered roads are causing significant travel difficulties across Minnesota and Wisconsin today, Tuesday, March 5.
As a result, numerous schools have closed for the day, including New Richmond, St. Croix Central, Glenwood City, Amery and Osceola.
Plows are out trying to keep up with the snow, but they are fighting a losing battle. Up to 6 or 7 additional inches of the white stuff are expected throughout the day.
