Tuesday Evening Storm Update....

...The North Country will be impacted by a significant winter storm...

.../*Heavy Snow Warning remains in effect from 1AM Wednesday until 7 AM 

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Burlington VT continues the Heavy 
Snow Warning for Vermont and northern New York. Snow will overspread our 
area late tonight...and become heavy Wednesday into Wednesday night. 
Total snow accumulations from the storm by Thursday morning will be as 

/****8 to 16 inches in the St Lawrence Valley of New York
***12 to 24 inches across Rutland...Windsor and Orange counties of Vermont
*** 16 to 26 inches elsewhere across the Adirondacks and Champlain 
valley of Vermont and New York and across the remainder of central and 
northern Vermont*/...with some locally higher amounts in the mountains.

Along with the /*heavy snow*/...north or northwest winds will be 
increasing Wednesday afternoon and night resulting in /*blowing and 
drifting snow*/. This will result in /*near blizzard or whiteout 
conditions*/ at times. If outside...it's easy to become disoriented./* 
Combined with the cold weather...this will be a life threatening storm 
situation*/ if extreme caution is not used. Advanced planning is 
critical when preparing for storms of this nature. Planning involves 
snow removal...helping our neighbors...the safe use of power 
generators...and the avoidance of unnecessary travel. During 
Wednesday...travel will become increasingly difficult and dangerous with 
these conditions continuing into Thursday morning. /*There may be 
disruptions in power*/.

An area of developing low pressure over the Tennessee and Ohio River 
Valleys late Tuesday will track northeast and reorganize along the North 
Carolina and Virginia coastlines early Wednesday. This storm will 
intensify and move to near Cape Cod late Wednesday and Wednesday night. 
/*The combination of heavy snow...increasing winds and cold temperatures 
will severely impact the region*/ Wednesday and Wednesday night.

If you need to stock up on nonperishable foods and liquids as well as 
batteries and flashlights.../*this evening is the time to complete last 
minute preparations*/. All interests in the north country should monitor 
NOAA Weather Radio....local Radio and TV and heed the advice of 
Emergency Management. You may also monitor the NWS homepage
