Weekend Weather Forecast: Tips For Winter Storm Preparedness


Winter Storm Preparedness: Forecasters on Saturday said the Northeast should brace for more snow and the southeast faced an upcoming threat of severe thunderstorms. Meanwhile, snow was falling in parts of the central U.S., where some were under winter weather advisories.

Here’s what to know about the weekend weather forecast:

  • Snow in Kansas, Missouri: Eight inches of snow had fallen in western Kansas by Saturday afternoon, the most in the region, according to AccuWeather meteorologists. By Saturday night, football fans attending an NFL playoff game in Kansas City, Missouri, should also get wintry precipitation from the storm.
  • More snow in the Northeast: Just days after the last storm, more snow is on the way. The storm is expected by Sunday night and will affect an interior swath of the northeast spanning from Pittsburgh to Maine.
  • Severe storm risk in South: Forecasters predict severe thunderstorms spanning from east Texas to the Carolinas throughout next week. The heavy storms could bring damaging winds and possibly spur tornadoes and power outages.

Here Are A Few Tips That Could Assist You In Preparing For The Next Blizzard

Stock Warm Clothes And Food

To start with your winter storm preparedness, be prepared for a blizzard or freezing temperatures by stocking up on sleeping bags, warm blankets, and warm clothing in case of a power outage. Power outages are common doing snowstorms, and without power, your heating systems would not work. Therefore, keep adequate blankets and sleeping bags to protect yourself from the chilling weather. Stock some food in the house for at least 3-5 days. Because as the storm worsens, you won’t be able to walk out of the house to buy groceries.

A Backup Power Source

Using a generator to help with winter heating and keep appliances running during a winter storm blackout is a good idea, but make sure you use it safely. Keep an adequate amount of gas to keep the generator running for long hours. It’s a good idea to keep the generator at least 20 ft from the house to prevent the accumulation of Carbon Monoxide (CO) in and around the house.

Salt-based ice melt compounds should be used with caution because too much can poison the soil, damage vulnerable concrete, and some are poisonous to pets. Salt on new concrete damages it with the freeze-thaw cycles happening due to the variation in temperatures during the day and night.
