A blustery north wing blowing in excess of 35 mph at times may limit visibility and hinder travel for Wednesday morning. There may be blowing and drifting snow in portions of the area, so the public is to take caution and possibly move travel departure from Wednesday morning until Wednesday afternoon.

It’s a good time to refresh the first-snowfall driving habits.
