Lakes Becoming Very Icy and Dangerous After This Weekend's Weather

Posted: Updated:

With this weekend's temperatures and rainy conditions, lakes are becoming very icy and dangerous.

Most areas in Northern Michigan experienced temperatures in the 40's today which melted some of the lingering snow and ice.

On top of the melting snow and ice, rain made the conditions even slipperier and sloppier.

The Cadillac Fire Department hopes people will be very cautious and think twice before stepping out onto the ice or snowmobiling across lakes.

The Cadillac Fire Department says if you do choose to go out on the ice make sure to go with another person, don't drink alcohol, and bring an ice claw or ice pick just in case if you fall through.
