1/29/2021 - Optimum Monitoring Weather & Potential Storm
The National Weather Service is predicting that an arctic airmass will impact our area Friday (1/29) bringing northwest winds with 20- 40 mph gusts. In addition, there is the potential for a winter storm to affect the Tri-State area Sunday (1/31) through Tuesday (2/1) resulting in heavy snow accumulation, freezing air, and strong to damaging winds with 40- 50mph gusts. The combination of strong winds, heavy snow and ice have the potential to blow down trees and power lines which may have the potential to cause power outages and network damage that could impact internet, TV and phone service.
