CLAVERACK WEATHER UPDATE -- BLIZZARD WARNING ISSUED FOR COLUMBIA COUNTY
The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a BLIZZARD WARNING for Columbia County, effective through Tuesday night.
Snow is expected to begin early Tuesday morning, tapering off to snow showers during the day on Wednesday. We are expecting 18” to 24” of snow here in Claverack.
Very gusty winds will result in white-out conditions.
The worst conditions are expected noon to 7:00 pm on Tuesday. During this time, travel is discouraged. It is recommended that you make arrangements to be home, or at the very least off the roads, during this time.
Our Town Highway Department is as prepared as possible and will be out doing their best to keep roads open.
Winds may cause scattered power outages. Any outage that occurs may be for an extended period, as crews may not be able to access affected areas. Please plan ahead and be prepared.
Should a power outage occur, contact your power company direct (National Grid: 800-867-5222, NYSEG: 800-572-1131). Do not dial 911 to report power outages, unless you have an emergency.
We will monitor conditions tomorrow and issue additional updates as needed.
