Winter Weather Advisory Defined
UPDATED January 20, 2012
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Joe Bartosik
- Allow plenty of travel time to reach your destination. Allow extra braking distance between you and the person ahead of you.
- Keep a winter weather emergency kit in your car that includes a first aid kit, flashlight, blankets and clothing.
- Be very careful when shoveling snow, especially if you have a history of heart trouble. Bend at the knees when lifting, but try to push the snow out of the way as you shovel, instead of lifting it all at once.
