... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 1 PM EST this
afternoon...

* colder air will continue to move in from northwest through this
morning changing a wintry mix of sleet and snow to all snow.
The snow may fall heavy at times this morning... before
lightening and tapering off by afternoon.

downed power lines and trees with widespread power outages
possible.

A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow and sleet means severe
winter weather conditions are expected. Significant amounts of

areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

poor drainage areas and low lying spots. Do not attempt to travel
across flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few
inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.
