BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The United States Coast Guard is issuing a new warning about weak ice that's causing problems in Buffalo and across the Great Lakes.

According to the Coast Guard, the current ice conditions are far below average throughout the Great Lakes region.

This means you should exercise caution when approaching ice for recreational users.

If you plan on using the ice, never assume that it's safe even if others are using it.

Here are some tips before you participate in cold weather activities.
