Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will
cause primarily travel difficulties. Expect snow covered roads
and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.

A Wind Chill Advisory is issued when the combination of wind and
cold air create very cold wind chills. Frostbite and hypothermia,
which can lead to death, can occur if steps are not taken to
protect yourself. Cover up. Dress warmly and in layers. Travel
with extra blankets or additional clothing in case of vehicle
trouble.
