NORTHEAST KANSAS WINTER WEATHER AWARENESS DAY
  Monday, December 1st, 2014

 

 

The National Weather Service Topeka office will observe Winter Weather Awareness Day on Monday, December 1st.

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.

The winter season can bring rapidly changing weather conditions, which often catches people off-guard and, thus, unprepared for the hazards associated with winter weather. 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 weather can mean dramatically different weather conditions.
