HART — With today’s wintry weather, Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast urges motorists to slow down on the slick roads.

A weather system is bringing snow, sleet and freezing rain to the area, and deputies have been busy with cars sliding off into ditches.

Oceana County is under a winter weather advisory until Wednesday, April 4, at 11 a.m.

The National Weather Service is forecasting mixed precipitation to continue with snow accumulations of 3-5 inches.

“Plan on slippery road conditions, including during the morning commute on Wednesday. Expect reduced visibilities at times,” states NWS.

“A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Expect slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.”

According to Central Dispatch information, a vehicle crash causing injuries on southbound US 31 occurred shortly before 4 p.m. near the Winston Road exit in Rothbury. Shortly before 5 p.m., another injury crash occurred on southbound US 31 near Pentwater.

“It’s pretty slick,” Mast said. “We’re back to winter driving.”
