Winter Guide (Winter Weather Awareness Week)
 
Winter can bring a variety of conditions, including heavy snow, ice, and cold temperatures. These conditions can make driving conditions hazardous, with power outages occurring at times. In the end, you may become exposed to the elements...with your life threatened.

To help the citizens of Arkansas prepare for these conditions, a special week has been set aside to review safety rules and to understand the hazards of winter. This year, Winter Weather Awareness Week runs from November 16-20, 2015.

 

For Your Information
The NWS will transmit winter weather safety information on the NWS Weather Wire and on NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards during this week. You can also acquire weather information from NWS Little Rock on the Internet!
