Winter storms are hard to predict, come in all varieties, and often catch us by surprise.
These storms are generally defined by the dominant varieties of precipitation being snow or sleet, or a
rainstorm where ground temperatures are cold enough to allow ice to form (i.e. freezing rain).
A blizzard is a severe winter storm condition characterized by low temperatures, strong winds, and heavy snow.
All types of winter storms make travel dangerous, many cause widespread power outages, school and airport closures,
delays, and in the worst cases, injury or death.
