Meteorologists Urge Preparedness for Winter Weather

It's Winter Weather Awareness Day in Kansas. While some Kansans may think that tornadoes are the main weather hazard in this part of the country, statistics show that on the average, there are more fatalities due to ice on roadways than there are due to tornadoes. Kris Craven is a meteorologist with the Topeka office of the National Weather Service, and explains that the kinds of advisories issued during the winter are a bit different than those issued the rest of the year.

The National Weather Service is urging people to get their cars and homes ready for winter, to prepare and carry a winter emergency kit in the car, and to take winter weather travel warnings seriously.
The official winter weather forecast is available online at type "winter outlook" in the search bar.
