Wednesday morning’s commute could be a tricky one.

A winter weather advisory has been issued for southeast Michigan.

The National Weather Service is calling for freezing rain and sleet starting in the early morning hours Wednesday.

Widespread freezing rain, with some sleet, is expected to spread across the area tonight through Wednesday morning.

The potentially dangerous weather event will effect portions of Southeast Michigan along and south of the I-69 corridor between 1 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Total ice accumulations of one-tenth to two-tenths of an inch are expected.

There may be a change over to rain before ending in the afternoon due to warming temperatures.

Hazardous and slick travel conditions are likely, especially on untreated roadways, bridges, exit ramps, and overpasses.

Motorists should anticipate driving conditions that will vary.

There is a new officer joining the ranks of Huron Township police.

Crystal Niewiadomski was sworn in at Huron Township Hall by Clerk Jeremy Cady on Jan. 30.

Niewiadomski is a 2018 graduate of Lake Superior State University’s 50th police academy class.

In May of 2018, she received three bachelor’s degrees from Lake Superior State University.

Niewiadomski is the department’s second full-time female officer.

The other full-time officer is Detective Kari Schneider.

The department also employs part-time officer Krissy Faull.

“Throughout the hiring process, I was very impressed with Crystal’s great ethical character, along with her excellent interpersonal, problem-solving and conflict-resolution skills. Her eagerness to learn and how excited she is to be a part of this community is fun to watch. Knowing how hard she has worked to get herself to this point in her life, I was extremely proud watching her be sworn in. She grew up in a small town similar to Huron Township and I think she understands how special a small tight-knit community like Huron is,” said Public Safety Director Everette Robbins.
