Bitterly Cold & Snow This Weekend; Travel Will Be Hazardous

A storm system is shaping up to move across the region from Friday through Saturday. The storm is likely to bring some very cold air to the area along with accumulating snowfall. The strong winds could pose a couple problems. First, any tree limbs loaded with snow could break off and cause power outages. Second, blowing and drifting of snow could make travel treacherous. Very cold temperatures will also pose a hazard, especially if there are power outages. People are advised to look over their severe winter weather plans and make preparations for a possible winter storm on Friday and Saturday.
