MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – After balmy weather for most of Thanksgiving day, parts of Minnesota saw temperatures drop as much as 30 degrees.

Temperatures that started in the 60s in some areas of Minnesota Thursday dipped into the 30s by late afternoon. Rain, sleet and snow fell in parts of the Twin Cities metro.  In St. Cloud, 2.2 inches of snow fell.

The State Patrol says areas in the northwest, central and west-central parts of the state they are seeing slippery spots and blowing snow. Drivers are being cautioned to watch for icy spots on bridges and overpasses.

Troopers have already responded to a number of vehicles that slid off the roadway on I-94 near Avon and Fergus Falls and on Highway 10 near Rice.

Temperatures are expected to drop even further today, with highs in the upper 20s.
