Is It Winter Yet?

There are many things I love about winter — hot chocolate, mittens, flannel jammies and woolly tights, to name but a few.

Well, our friends at NOAA must be looking forward to jammies as well, ‘cuz they’re already wanting us to think about winter weather, even when it’s in the mid-60’s outside.

That’s right, this is Winter Weather Safety and Awareness Week throughout the NW and there are tips every day to make sure you’re prepared when freezing weather strikes.

Want wintery terminology? Need to know the difference between a watch and a warning? Wondering how to tell apart an eastern and western windstorm? NOAA’s got it covered.
