WEATHER

Get ready for some white stuff!

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch in effect from Saturday 12:00 noon until Monday 12 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time) (That’s us by the way)

Temperatures dipped to 24 degrees overnight. Wake up to 26 degrees at 6 a.m. A slight warming is expected with the temperature reaching freezing (32 degrees) at 10 a.m. Not much will improve after that. Temperatures will remain steady at about 33 degrees for the rest of the day leading into midnight.

Snow is predicted to begin at around 4 p.m. and continue throughout the night and into Sunday.

Snow tips:

Place cars in your driveway back to back to avoid shoveling snow as much as possible. Keep cars off the side of the road to avoid damage from plows or from getting plowed in. Allow at least 4 feet away from the road to ensure plows won’t damage cars. Remember your car can be towed if parked on a snow emergency route. A list of streets on the Snow Emergency Route can be found below under PSA.

Clear paths before snow hits to avoid shoveling toys and other items after the snow falls.

Place shovels near doors inside to allow easy access after snow has stopped falling.

Place any de-icing materials where they can be easily accessed.

Many people find it advantageous to lift their windshield wipers to avoid them being frozen to the windshield.

Make sure those outdoor hoses are cleared of any water or disconnected from the taps outside.

NOTE: We will keep you posted on road conditions throughout the day Saturday as we obtain reports.
