Stay Off Roads Tonight – Advice After Hercules
Although the snow has stopped in many parts of the WGNA listening area, it is recommended that you not travel tonight due to blowing and drifting snow.
The Weather Channel reports that “as a result of the blowing snow and very low temperatures, road-clearing efforts will be very difficult. Road salt and chemicals lose much of their effectiveness when temperatures drop into the single digits or lower.” The first major winter storm of 2014, named ‘Hercules,’ has dumped inches and inches of snow all over the Northeast.
Locally, News10ABC is reporting that we will see wind gusts of 10-20 MPH on Friday causing blowing and drifting snow, which can make traveling quite dangerous. In addition, should you find yourself stranded, you will have to face brutally and bitter cold temperatures Friday night of 10-20 below, before the Wind Chill Factor.
