Winter Weather Advisory
Statement as of 3:52 AM January 20, 2012
...Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 9 am this morning to midnight tonight...
Timing...snow will develop during the mid to late morning hours
and continue through this afternoon...then ending tonight. The
heaviest snowfall will occur this afternoon.
Accumulations...snowfall totals of 3 to 6 inches can be
expected with locally heavier totals possible. Hazards...snow could fall rather heavily at times resulting in reduced visibilities and snowfall rates of a half inch to inch per hour at times.
* Impacts...accumulating snow will cause significantly increased
travel times...resulting in a particularly treacherous commute
this afternoon. In addition...very cold temperatures in the
teens will make salt less effective making it harder for Road
crews to keep roads clear of snow and ice. The snow will also
result in significant disruptions to air travel as well.
A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities...and use caution while driving.
