The National Weather Service issues what they call a 'Hazardous Weather Outlook' several days before a storms arrival. They do it so that residents can be mindful of the dangerous conditions that could impact within the next seven days.  The latest outlook from the NWS indicates that a storm system that is making its way to the Capital Region may affect travel conditions on Thursday into Friday, which could make things messy for those of us traveling on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
