Warm temps this week create unreliable ice
Forecasted temperatures in the 40s across southern Minnesota this week add yet another reason to be careful if heading out on the ice, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
"Ice thickness guidelines become unreliable once the temp gets above 32 degrees," according to Lt. Cory Palmer, enforcement supervisor for the DNR. "Snowmobiles, ATVs and other vehicles should stay off the ice until temps drop below 32 degrees for at least 24 hours."
