Minnesota is undergoing its first sustained period of icy weather of the season, and drivers once again have forgotten how to handle it.
There have been multiple crashes reported across the Twin Cities overnight and into Saturday morning.
It comes after rain and snow overnight turned roads and overpasses into "ice rinks," per MnDOT.
The problems are particularly bad in the west metro, as the picture above shows the situation at 8:10 a.m.
There are 5-6 crashes in a short stretch of Hwy. 169, with other incidents reported on I-394, Hwy. 62, Hwy. 100 and I-494.
"Use extra caution driving around this morning," MnDOT says. "In particular, be ready to hit slick spots on bridges."
The good news for drivers is that the long-term forecast for the Twin Cities, while cold overnight, looks relatively dry for the next several days.
