pass, with gusts to 45 mph. Then wind speeds will increase in
the afternoon to 40 to 55 mph sustained with gusts to up 70 mph.


* IMPACTS...Plan on slippery road conditions. Widespread blowing
snow will significantly reduce visibility. The hazardous
conditions will impact the morning commute when heavy snow will
be more of the issue, and the evening commute when wind and
blowing snow will be more the issue. Very strong winds could
cause extensive tree damage. The cold wind chills as low as 20
below zero could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as
30 minutes.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Slow down and use caution while traveling.
