While the rain and snow that moved across the Northland last night lingers across far northern Minnesota this morning, temperatures near the freezing mark are causing wet roads to become icy.
If traveling this morning be prepared for occasional slick spots, especially on bridges and overpasses. Icy roads have been reported even in areas where the air temperature is a few degrees above freezing - just because your vehicle's thermometer says the air temperature is above freezing does not mean there aren't any icy spots on the road. Temperatures can also vary due to small hills and valleys.
These slippery conditions will last through the morning commute, then temperatures should warm up above freezing by mid morning today.
Forecast: Light wintry mix tonight and Monday
An area of low pressure will move along the Borderland tonight and Monday producing a light wintry mix, changing to snow at times.
Snowfall amounts will be light, around 1-3" at most tonight through Monday, along and north of the Iron Range.
