Parry Sound can expect slushy conditions around area lakes and rivers as warmer temperatures begin to melt the substantial snow that fell on the region this winter.

The OPP is urging snowmobilers to be extra cautious as the melting snow begins to expose riding hazards such as rocks and fallen trees.

Police want to remind riders that with the drop in temperatures during the night, getting stuck in slush could quickly become a life and death situation not to mention the unnecessary risk to first responders.

Manitoulin OPP also warns that with temperatures lingering around freezing, wet roads may turn to ice rinks without notice.

Deep puddles present serious hazards from hydroplaning to loss of control and they can also hide damaging potholes.

The OPP reminds motorists to drive slowly, be prepared and always be mindful of changing road and weather conditions.
