An ICE STORM WARNING is in effect from 9 pm Sunday evening to 2 pm Monday afternoon.

The National Weather Service has issued an ice storm warning, replacing the previously-released winter storm watch.

Location: Northern Carlton and southern St. Louis Counties, particularly the ares between Cloquet and Duluth, including Interstate 35; Proctor, Esko, Carlton, Arnold, Duluth, and immediately  adjacent areas. Also included is the Highway 61 corridor between Duluth and Two Harbors.

Timing: Roughly 9 pm this evening through midday Monday. The potential for the most significant icing is expected from 4 am to noon Monday.

Details: Ice accumulations of a quarter to a half inch. East-Northeast winds of 20-30 mph, gusting to 40 mph.

Impacts: Trees and power lines may be damaged or downed by the combination of the weight of ice and high winds, resulting in power outages. Roads, especially bridges, ramps, overpasses, and sidewalks may be icy and hazardous. Some roads may be partially or completely blocked by downed trees or power lines late overnight and early Monday.

Precautions/Preparedness: An ice storm warning means significant amounts of ice accumulations may make travel dangerous. Damage to trees and power lines may occur, resulting in local power outages and fallen tree/power line debris blocking roadways.

Ice accumulations and winds will likely lead to snapped power lines and falling tree branches that will add to the danger. Use extreme caution if you must travel.
