The National Weather Service has declared the week of October 16-22 “Pacific Northwest Winter Weather Awareness Week”.
The Pacific Northwest experiences weather ranging from mild to extreme throughout the year. National Weather Service meteorologists educate people everyday about the region’s climate and weather, but this winter weather campaign offers people an opportunity to refresh their knowledge about winter weather threats.
The campaign will focus on specific winter weather topics including safety and preparedness information, snow storms, wind chill, blizzards, ice storms and floods.
