A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather
conditions are expected or occurring. Significant amounts of
snow are forecast that will make travel dangerous. In addition...
snowfall intensities will be heavy enough to substantially reduce
visibilities at times. Travel is discouraged. If travel is
unavoidable... keep an extra flashlight... food... and water in your
vehicle in case of an emergency.

A Wind Chill Advisory means that cold air and strong winds will
combine to generate very low wind chills. These conditions can
result in frost bite and lead to hypothermia or even death if
precautions are not taken. Those venturing outdoors should dress
warmly... making sure all exposed skin is covered.
