A brief shower has dampened the roads in parts of the metro, including on northbound 35W in downtown Minneapolis.

There is no word if the rain played a role in a spinout accident at Portland Avenue. The left lane remains blocked as tow trucks work to take the wreckage away.  Look for a back up at 26th Street.

In the north metro, levels are just beginning to build on southbound 35W from Hwy. 10 to County Road 96.
