No travel is advised in Crow Wing and Cass counties because roads are really slippery.
Light freezing rain overnight and Friday morning left a coating of ice on roads in central Minnesota, including from the Brainerd Lakes Area north to Longville and Walker, the National Weather Service says.
Ben Allen tweeted a photo (see above) of a truck flipped on its roof, saying northeast Crow Wing County "is a skating rink." And weather officials said there have been "many reports" of spin outs in central and northwestern Minnesota, where a freezing rain advisory is in effect until noon.
Even though the temperature is above freezing, the road temperature isn't – so when the rain hits the road surface, it freezes, the weather service says. But roads are expected to warm up by Friday afternoon, so that should improve things.
