Special Weather Statement for Upper Midwest March 23-24, 2016

Advisory @ 03:00 AM, March 23, 2016:

As you know, our Tropical Storm Research Center does not normally comment on inland storms. However, an early spring snow storm is currently under way from Colorado to Iowa. This storm will be moving into Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan over the next 48 hours and has the potential to produce 8 to over 15 inches of heavy, wet, wind driven snow in a large area. Driving is difficult in areas already affected and as the storm moves east today, more and more persons will be affected. Use extreme caution because of treacherous roads and limited visibility. Reminder: the new style of LED traffic signals do not generate enough heat to melt snow and ice built up against the lenses. USE CAUTION when approaching roadway intersections because the traffic signals may not be visible !
