ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- A wintry mix of sleet and light snow has transitioned into mainly freezing rain throughout much of the area. For the next several hours travel across a large section of the Upper Midwest will be significantly impacted and is not recommended.
Ice accumulations and numerous accidents have been reported due to the freezing rain across our area. This is expected to continue through the late evening hours for most. Once the heaviest precipitation stops, the area will still be under the risk for patchy freezing drizzle overnight and into early Monday morning. Travel Monday morning could be impacted if roads are not treated, but much of the left over precipitation should be over by daybreak. Temperatures will jump into the mid to upper 30s Monday afternoon to help melt the has ice that has built up.
Timing: From now through the late evening
Impacts: Icy roads and sidewalks will make travel extremely difficult to impossible and is not recommended for all of Sunday area wide.
Ice build up on power lines and tree branches could cause spotty power hiccups or outages.
