Light rain freezing on roads, cars hitting ditches

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - The National Weather Service has issued a freezing rain advisory effective until 10 a.m. today for a dozen counties in eastern North Dakota and parts of west-central and northwest Minnesota.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - The National Weather Service has issued a freezing rain advisory effective until 10 a.m. today for a dozen counties in eastern North Dakota and parts of west-central and northwest Minnesota.

A band of light rain moving across the Red River Valley and northwest Minnesota should move out of the area by 10 a.m., the weather service said.

Only a couple hundredths of an inch of rain is expected.

However, with air temperatures above freezing - Fargo was at 33 degrees just before 7 a.m. - and ground temperatures below freezing, the light rain was freezing on roadways and creating slippery conditions, leading to cars hitting the ditch in Cass and Clay counties.

Two vehicles slid into the ditch along Interstate 29 just south of Hillsboro, N.D., this morning. No one was injured, a Traill County dispatcher said.

A non-injury rollover accident also was reported on Highway 9 north of Ada, Minn., a Norman County dispatcher said.
