Heavy snow will begin early Tuesday morning and affect the morning rush hour, with whiteout conditions throughout the day. By the evening commute, there is strong potential for 16 to 20 inches of snow to have blanketed the state. Snowfall rates may reach 2 to 4 inches per hour at intermittent periods throughout the day, which will be exacerbated by gusty and potentially dangerous winds.
All residents should have the following items available:
Flashlight and extra batteries.
Battery-powered portable radio to receive emergency information.
Adequate supplies of food, water, and any essential medications.
First aid kit and supplies.
Extra blankets and sleeping bags.
Fire extinguisher and smoke detector – test to ensure they are working properly.
We strongly urge everyone to limit unnecessary travel on Tuesday, and if you must ‎drive, please plan ahead, be careful, and stay safe.
To stay informed on recent updates, road closures and more, please follow along here.
Thank you, and stay safe.
