ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Parts of southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa are under weather alerts to start off this Saturday morning. A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect until 9 AM for areas highlighted in gray including Cerro Gordo, Floyd, Mitchell, Hancock, Winnebago, Worth, Howard, and Winneshiek counties in northern Iowa. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 10 AM for areas in purple including Freeborn, Steele, and Goodhue counties. Use extra caution this morning when out on the roads as visibilities may be reduced, especially in northern Iowa. Slick spots are also possible throughout the area due to some light wintry mix moving through southeast Minnesota and northwest Iowa.
There is a chance for some light snow, freezing drizzle, and drizzle throughout the day across southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa. Little to no accumulation is expected, however, continue to exercise caution when driving as slick spots are possible across the area.
