Pacific Northwest Winter Weather Awareness Week


By Brian Neudorff

The National Weather Service has declared the week of October 21-27 as Winter Weather Awareness Week across the Pacific Northwest. What does it mean to be Winter Weather Aware? It means it is time for all individuals, families, businesses and schools to review their winter weather preparedness plans.

Across the Pacific Northwest as well as the state of Idaho, we can experience all kinds of winter weather. It is important that we all take the time to prepare our cars, homes, and ourselves for the upcoming winter. Winter storms can produce just rain, rain, snow and ice which can cause major travel problems, and the worst case would be winter storms with heavy snow, strong winds and the potential for blizzard conditions. 

Each day this week there will be a new topic on how to prepare this winter. During the first week of November, the Weather Authority team will be taking a closer look at how winter affects here in the Magic Valley and also release our Winter Weather outlook for 2013-14.
