Road conditions improve in northwest Minnesota
Drivers urged to continue using caution


BEMIDJI, Minn.- (2:45 p.m.) State road conditions in northwest Minnesota are much improved from this morning and have been upgraded to fair driving, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.


An early winter storm of rain, snow and strong winds caused difficult to hazardous conditions earlier in the day dumping 8-12 inches of snow in the Roseau area and creating 5-6 inches of slush on highways in the Crookston area.
