Large Area of Freezing Rain Moving In To Minnesota

A large area of freezing rain is pushing northward and is expected to arrive in Minnesota this afternoon.

“The bulk of any ice accumulation will stay south of the metro along I-90 and south,” said KSTP meteorologist Josh Wurster.

But we could still see a thin glaze which could still cause problems on the roads, according to Wurster.

By this evening, the freezing drizzle could pick up in intensity and turn into a freezing rain event.

Wurster says Tuesday morning’s commute could be slow as roads could still be icy.
