Meanwhile, Minnesota roads in the metro were clear Friday morning, but areas north and west of Baxter, as well as areas north and west of Duluth, saw some partially and fully covered roads.

Those headed north for weekend hunting had to prepare for slick road conditions.

The Minnesota State Patrol reported troopers responded to a few crashes due to ice-covered roads, particularly near Moorhead.
