DNR Warns of Changing Ice Conditions

UNDATED — The Minnesota DNR is asking anyone who plans to head out onto the ice to take some extra precautions.

Because the temperature has been well above freezing for a few days, the ice conditions can change rapidly.

DNR Water Safety Specialist Kara Owens says if we get rain, it will complicate things. She says the weight of the rain can cause ice to weaken and when it re-freezes, the ice will be layered and ultimately weaker too.

The DNR says when the temperature rises above freezing for six hours during a 24-hour period, you should double the recommended minimum thickness for walking or driving on the ice.

Owens says make sure to double check ice conditions before heading out.
