Transition to snow overnight

Mist and freezing rain has been ongoing throughout the day on Sunday across much of Minnesota.  Across southeastern Minnesota, numerous accidents have been reported as roads are glazed over by a thin layer of ice.  Slowly, this rain is transitioning to snow as we head towards the midnight hour.


Snow bands will rotate around an area of low pressure across southern Minnesota during the morning hours.  While moisture content is meager, it will be enough to support one to two inches of snow across the Interstate 35 corridor from the Twin Cities to the Minnesota/Iowa border.


The morning commute will be slow with the snow on top of the layer of ice.  Give yourself plenty of time if you have to travel.
