...FREEZING RAIN AND A WINTRY MIXTURE OF PRECIPITATION TONIGHT...

.Periods of freezing rain, sleet, and light snow will develop over
parts of northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin tonight. Rain
will spread into the region late this afternoon and this evening,
and the rain will transition to freezing rain as temperatures
cool overnight. The greatest threat of freezing rain is for the
Minnesota Arrowhead, Iron Range, and Duluth area, where one can
anticipate a light glaze of ice, but possibly as much as a tenth
of an inch of ice. Parts of northwest Wisconsin will also get a
light glaze of ice, but to a lesser degree and later in the night
compared to northeast Minnesota. There could also be periods of
light sleet and light snow in northeast Minnesota overnight, mixed
in with the rain and freezing rain. Travel across the advised
areas may be difficult overnight into Friday morning, until
temperatures rebound later Friday morning. Please exercise caution
on the roads, and keep in mind road temperatures could be colder
than the air temperature.
