A Winter Storm Watch is advanced notice that the potential for
severe winter weather exists in the Watch area, but it does not
mean it is a certainty. Those in the Watch area should begin
preparing in case the storm does materialize. If you have travel
planned, you may want to adjust your travel time to avoid the
storm. Also, you should use this advanced notice to make certain
your vehicle is winterized. Make preparations at home by stocking
emergency supplies, such as food, medicine, and extra heating
fuel, just in case the storm makes travel impossible. This is
especially important for those living in rural areas.
