OCEANA COUNTY – The National Weather Service upgraded the winter weather advisory to a winter storm warning, which remains in effect until Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 1 p.m.

Counties affected include Oceana, Mason, Lake, Osceola, Clare, Newaygo, Mecosta and Isabella.

Expect heavy snow with accumulations of 4-8 inches. “Wind gusts in excess of 35 mph will continue this morning leading to areas of blowing snow,” states NWS.

“Plan on difficult travel conditions and low visibility during the Tuesday morning, evening, and Wednesday morning commutes. Blowing snow will be worst on north-to-south orientated roadways.

“A winter storm warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your
vehicle in case of an emergency.”
