NORTHEAST KANSAS WINTER WEATHER AWARENESS DAY
  Wednesday November 20th, 2013


The National Weather Service Topeka will observe Winter Weather Awareness Day on Wednesday, November 20th.  Winter Weather Awareness Day is a day set aside each fall to prepare for the cold, snow, and ice expected during the winter season in Kansas. It is a day to promote safety preparedness for the potentially hazardous weather that winter brings each year.

Winter can mean rapidly changing weather that often catches people unprepared. Precipitation can begin as rain and quickly change to snow or freezing rain. As you travel, make sure to obtain the latest weather forecast and road conditions before you head out. Traveling even short distances in winter can mean dramatically different weather conditions.
