Winter Weather Terminology

All winter long the National Weather Service posts watches and warnings or advisories for Winter Storms or Blizzards.  Do you know the difference?

National Weather Service

To be classified as a Winter Storm, our area must be forecasted to receive at least 7 inches of snow in a 12 hour period or 9 inches in 24 hours.

A Blizzard combines wind and decreased visibility due to blowing snow.  For a blizzard warning to be in effect, the storm must produce sustained 35 mph winds and visibilities of less than1/4 of a mile.
