Don't let the sunny weather fool you, roads are still slick and several people around the area found that out the hard way on Friday morning.  State Patrol troopers in Minnesota and North Dakota say at least four rollovers have happened around the Fargo-Moorheaed metro, and several vehicles have also hit the ditch.

Two rollovers happened on Highway 10 near Hawley on Friday morning, another on I-29 near Colfax and one on I-94 near Wheatland. 

State troopers say although the snow is starting to melt, the road surfaces are cooler than the air temperature, which makes the roads frosty and slippery.

The roads will likely be getting worse throughout the weekend, as snow, wind and cold temperatures move in. Authorities say to slow down and not use cruise control.
