Snow that fell on the area Tuesday led to numerous crashes on both interstates 35 and 90 in the Albert Lea area. 

According to the National Weather Service, Albert Lea received 3 inches of snow, while other cities in the area received similar amounts, with 2 inches reported in Clarks Grove and 1.8 inches reported in Glenville. Larger amounts were reported in the Twin Cities with about 8 inches.
