Ice Storm Warning!

Color codes:
  • Deep purple: ice storm warning
  • Pink: winter storm warning for ice 
  • Dark cyan: winter storm watch 
  • Purple: winter weather advisory 
  • Green: flood warning
There is no difference between an ice storm warning and a winter storm warning for ice. It is an unfortunate quirk of today's National Weather Service. Back in the day, they issued separate "heavy snow warnings" and "ice storm warnings."

Here is a NWS map forecasting the amounts of ice.
Throughout the area with accumulating ice, travel will be nearly impossible. In the areas in orange and red, there could be power failures. 

Please prepare accordingly!
