It's a rain delay on I-694 across the northern suburbs as westbound traffic is creeping along from I-35E over to Hwy. 252.

The rain also seems to be bogging things down on southbound Hwy. 169 from 77th Avenue in Brooklyn Park down to 394. 

Southbound 35W also has a pocket of very heavy traffic from Lexington Avenue down to about County Road 96.

Westbound Hwy. 610 hits the skids at Zane Avenue. Look for a crash ahead at Hwy. 169.

South metro routes are moving fairly well, but do expect a pocket of congestion here and there, especially on northbound Cedar, 35W and Hwy. 169 approaching the Minnesota River.
