Hawley, MN (WDAY TV) - Many roads are cleared off after a warm-up and freeze Friday but some of the back roads showed just how treacherous this weather can be.

While many main roads were cleared off and only icy in a few patches, when you got onto the back roads it was a completely different story.

Several roads, including Highway 32 between Hawley and the Hitterdal-Ulen area, were coated with ice.

The slick surfaces made for some tough travel even for those who are used to driving on these icy back roads.

Eldon Moore/Ulen Resident: "I'd say it's a bit on the icy side. I have a Chevy pick-up, so that's the main thing, put it in 4-wheel drive and went pretty good. I'd say just keep the speed down and you'll be okay."

Saturday night a blanket of snow could be headed our way, making things even more slippery.

The slippery roads caused at least one rollover accident nearly Ulen late Saturday morning; there were no serious injuries.
