ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Dozens of churches in northern Iowa and southeastern Minnesota canceled Sunday services and planned activities, as a winter storm system carrying freezing rain and a wintry mix of ice and snow moves through.

As warmer air surges northward, much of the freezing rain from this morning has already transitioned to a wintry mix of rain, sleet, and snow.  With temperatures right around the freezing mark, still be on the lookout for icy patches on the roads, especially untreated ones.

Snow may begin to mix in at times before a complete changeover to all snow later today and especially overnight.  Accumulations of a couple of inches will be possible by Monday morning.

Thanks to that warmer air, Winter Weather Advisories have been allowed to expire for most places around the area.  Winter Weather Advisories continue for Faribault, Freeborn, Goodhue, Martin, Rice, and Steele counties until 6PM on Monday due to chance for higher snow accumulations during this winter storm.
