It is worth considering delaying travel that is not essential until conditions improve. Travel may be difficult in certain areas due to rapidly growing snow. The roads, sidewalks, walkways, and parking lots can become slippery and icy. If visibility is reduced while driving slow down, pay attention to tail lights ahead and be ready for a stop.

When multiple types of severe winter weather are expected, winter storm warnings will be issued.
