Winter weather has been a major problem for drivers in the Sioux Falls areas.

Since Friday, Sioux Falls Police Department said it has responded to 68 crashes. Throughout the weekend the area saw freezing rain and then several inches of snow.

The Sioux Falls area saw around three to six inches of snow.

On Monday, law enforcement agencies are still encouraging drivers to take precautions on the roads. Authorities say blowing snow, causing drifts and decreased visibility is a major concern.
