I've experienced similar situations on rare occasions here in Colorado. Do note that there are no aftermarket 'winter blades' that are the same size as the stock ones. And to the best of my knowledge, Toyota doesn't make winter blades for the FJ. So, I'm considering a heated windshield fluid unit:

See the difference literally when you install the AlphaTherm Windshield wiper washer heater. By heating your fluid to over 125 degrees F, the AlphaTherm Fluid heater sprays your windshield with a hot mist of fluid for powerful cleansing and will not harm or crack the windshield. The unit is made in the US to specific tolerances of factory units.
Once installed, the Alphatherm washer unit works in conjunction with your factory washer spray. Just activate the washer control and the heated fluid mists your windshield to clear ice and frost in winter bug guts and windshield road grime in summer.
The AlphaTherm Windshield heater bolts easily in your engine compartment and utilizes the fluid in your factory washer reservoir. Powered by your vehicle's electrical system, the fluid heater uses very little energy, yet is always ready to mist your windshield with heated windshield washer fluid.
The heated washer fluid also helps preserve the life and bolsters the effectiveness of your wiper blades. Plus, heated unblocks frozen or clogged spray nozzles and keeps them clear for maximum windshield coverage. Best yet, AlphaTherm backs your Windshield Heater with a frost-free 1 year warranty.
