Interstate 94 on Friday morning was closed from Fergus Falls to Alexandria due to freezing rain and ice, although it has since reopened, state highway officials said.

Several crashes and non-life-threatening injuries were reported.

Jackknifed semis were reported along the 50-mile stretch of interstate, the Associated Press reported.

From a highway patrol spokesman:

From earlier:

A number of schools in that west-central region of the state were closed or delayed.

Forecasts Thursday had called for snow Friday evening, but a widespread area of snow, freezing rain and rain will move through central and southern Minnesota during the day, including the Twin Cities area, KSTP says.

A Winter Weather Advisory continues until 1 a.m. Saturday.
