Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A warm-up in weather means a break from subzero temperatures, but it's added danger to area roads.

Travel is not advised in much of North Central and Northeastern North Dakota Friday night.

In the Metro, Dozens of cars have been sliding and rolling into ditches.

Things are only getting worse Friday night. Troopers say people need to "slow down."

Troopers say people are driving too fast for these spotty roads.

For those who need to travel, they say constantly re-evaluate the road conditions.

Many people are heading into town for a big youth hockey tournament in West Fargo this weekend.

Zach Booth is one of the coaches coming from Bloomington; they hit a slick patch on I-94 in Fargo and rolled into the ditch.

Zach Booth/Rolled into Ditch: "On the drive up here we saw a lot of spun out cars and if you see that, definitely slow down. We weren't even going fast, we were just switching lanes and then we rolled it."

If the afternoon was bad, it's only downhill from here, expect icy roads, high winds, and zero visibility.

If you have to travel, give yourself extra time and bring a survival kit.
