GMR Office Alert
The National Weather Service in Chicago has issued a Blizzard Warning in effect from 3:00 pm today, Tuesday, February 1, 2011, to 3 pm Wednesday, February 2nd. Snow accumulations in excess of a foot are expected over much of our Greater Midwest Region. Northwest winds of 25 to 40 mph with stronger gusts will result in blizzard and white-out conditions.
We are aware that similar conditions are forecast throughout the Midwest region. We will keep you posted as best we can through GMRLIST, our blog, the GMR Facebook page, and the GMR homepage: http://nnlm.gov/gmr/.
We have alerted our sister region, the Pacific Southwest Region, headquartered at UCLA, about our weather situation. If necessary, they will be assisting us with DOCLINE changes and other backup support.
Stay safe everyone.
