Last winter was memorable for many, particularly those who spent hours stuck on roadways during “Snowmageddon.”
Some weather forecasters are predicting this winter to be colder and wetter than average. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts lower than average temperatures overall for the Southeast this season. That does not necessarily equate to more frequent or stronger snowstorms, though, which are only predicted about a week in advance.
The Office of Emergency Preparedness has been working toward this winter for several months and advises that all employees, especially commuters, be prepared for whatever weather comes their way.
