Freezing rain expected to slow Sunday travel

Austin’s not completely in the clear after about 4 1/2 inches of snow Friday.

After a relatively quiet — though breezy and chilly — Saturday, freezing rain and some snow will settle over the area for much of Sunday, according to National Weather Service Meteorologist Andrew Just. Though freezing rain could affect driving throughout the day, Just said Sunday night could produce the messiest driving conditions.

The freezing rain will turn to snow late, but the bulk of accumulations is expected in eastern Minnesota and Wisconsin.
