NR-National Weather Service Upgrades Winter Storm Watch to Warning for Parts of Columbia County Until Sunday Afternoon

The National Weather Service (NWS) has upgraded their Winter Storm Watch to a Winter Storm Warning for parts of Columbia County until Sunday afternoon. Expect heavy snow, one to two feet of accumulation, above one thousand feet of elevation.

Be prepared for winter driving conditions with snow and ice covered roads and limited visibility. If you must travel in the mountains, slow down, and allow plenty of extra time to reach your destination. Allow extra following distance to the vehicle in front of you, and keep snow chains and a winter survival kit, including a flashlight, food, and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency. Stay safe and stay tuned for forecast updates from the National Weather Service.
