Road conditions vary throughout the metro area Thursday as plows continue to clear roads following Wednesday's snowfall.

Shortly before 7 a.m., multiple crashes and spinouts were reported by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT).

Temperatures around the metro area were below zero, with wind chill advisories in effect for the entire state. Drivers are being reminded to be prepared for weather conditions in case of a crash and to also prepare their vehicles for the elements.

Around 8:30 a.m., the Minnesota State Patrol told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS six vehicles crashed in the center median in the area of Highway 61 and 70th Street in St. Paul. Authorities say there were no injuries during that incident.

MnDOT also reported a crash on eastbound US 10 between 93rd Lane and I-35W.  A KSTP photographer says there was an overturned snowplow in that area.
