National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
630 AM EST Sun Nov 8 2020

Governor Eric Holcomb has proclaimed November 8 through November 14 as Winter Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana.

The National Weather Service, working with our partners, the State Police, the Indiana Departments of Homeland Security, Transportation and Education, and the Red Cross, will provide information on winter weather safety. Media outlets will continue their important role by carrying messages in newspapers, on the radio and on television.

The key to being safe during hazardous winter weather is
understanding your role in preserving your own safety. This ties to the National Weather Service vision of a Weather-Ready Nation where everyone plans for, prepares for, and responds to hazardous weather. All Hoosiers need to be hazard ready. Winter Weather Preparedness Week reviews safety planning for winter weather hazards.

Knowing winter weather terms and winter weather safety tips can reduce weather related problems. Remember when watches are issued you review your plans. When warnings are issued, you need to take action to remain safe from the dangers winter may bring.

The National Weather Service Indianapolis office will issue daily Public Information Statements that will contain the following information…

Monday…the NWS outlook for this winter, what is normal for winter temperatures and precipitation and preparing for cold.

Tuesday…winter weather travel safety.

Wednesday…winter safety considerations for schools.

Thursday…emergency kits for preparedness.

Friday…outdoor safety during winter.

Saturday…summarizing winter weather points for the week.

Winter weather information will be on NOAA radio broadcasts and on National Weather Service websites.
