... Blizzard Warning in effect from noon Monday to 6 PM EST
Tuesday...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a Blizzard
Warning, which is in effect from noon Monday to 6 PM EST Tuesday.
The blizzard watch is no longer in effect.

* Hazard types... heavy snow with strong winds causing considerable
blowing and drifting.

* Snow accumulations... 18 to 28 inches, with locally higher
amounts.

* Timing... snow begins around daybreak Monday with some impact to
the morning commute, then is expected to become heavy at times late
Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning before tapering off during
Tuesday afternoon. The brunt of the storm looks to occur Monday
night through early Tuesday afternoon, where snowfall rates of 2
to 4 inches per hour are anticipated.

* Impacts... extremely dangerous travel due to heavy snowfall and
strong winds, resulting in whiteout conditions. Secondary and
tertiary roads may become impassable. Strong winds may down
power lines and tree limbs.

* Winds... northeast 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph Monday,
then becoming north 20 to 30 mph with gusts 40 to 50 mph Monday
night into Tuesday with the highest gusts closer to the coast.

* Temperatures... around 30 degrees Monday, then dropping into the
mid 20s Monday night and Tuesday.

* Visibilities... one quarter mile or less at times.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds and poor
visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout
conditions, making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If
you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you and make sure
your cell phone is fully charged. If you get stranded, stay with your
vehicle.
