Winter Storm Advisory

 

    A citywide winter storm warning has been issued starting Thursday, January 2, 2014 at 6:00PM until 1:00PM on Friday, January 3, 2014. The current forecast calls for 6-8 inches of snow accompanied by strong winds and low temperatures. The Office of Emergency Management has issued a travel advisory warning of icy conditions on roadways and sidewalks. We are working together with our agency partners to prepare for the storm and will be closely monitoring and responding to local conditions as the storm progresses.
