Statement as of 1:02 PM EST on March 04, 2015

... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 7 PM this evening
to 1 PM EST Thursday...

* colder air will move in from northwest to southeast this through
tonight... changing precipitation from rain... to a mixture of
freezing rain... sleet... and then to snow. Freezing rain and

Accumulations of ice from freezing rain of a tenth of an inch
or less are also expected.

will cause stress on weak structures and could also lead to
downed power lines and trees with widespread power outages
possible.

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding. If flooding is observed act quickly. Move up to
higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to
flooding when water begins rising.
