The National Weather Service adds that travel is not recommended in any of the areas of impact. People should consider delaying all travel and if travel is necessary, drive with extreme caution.

Taking a winter storm kit along with you, including such items as tire chains, booster cables, flashlights, a shovel, blankets, and extra clothing, is recommended. Those who must travel should also take water, a first aid kit, and anything else that would help them survive in case they become stranded. The latest road conditions are also available by calling 5 1 1.
