LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Officials are urging people in Michigan to take precautions as another round of bitterly cold weather settles in across the state.
The Michigan State Police's Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division issued a warning Wednesday. The cold weather is moving into the state, with readings of 10 below zero already in the Upper Peninsula communities of Sault Ste. Marie and Iron Mountain.
The National Weather Service is forecasting temperatures around zero degrees in many other parts of the state and wind chills at 20 below or colder through Sunday. The western Lower Peninsula and parts of the Upper Peninsula could get several inches of snow.
Exposure to those temperatures could potentially cause frostbite and hypothermia, as well as create hazardous driving conditions and cause frozen pipes.
