The week of November 9th through the 14th is Winter Weather Awareness Week in Pennsylvania.
This program is one of many severe weather preparedness events that the National Weather Service (NOAA) coordinates across the country to ensure that people are aware of, and educated about the potential dangers that may be faced as a result of severe weather in their region.
It may be 60 degrees outside today, but soon the temperatures will fall for good and old man winter will be upon us.
So, please take a moment to visit the National Weather Service’s website to learn about winter weather:
- Prepare for Winter Storms

- Types of Heavy Snow Events that Impact our Region
- Ice Storms

- Frostbite and Hypothermia
