Look at the two storm fronts coming from the Northwest and South. This is going to be pretty to look at, but reminiscent of the storm of 1978, which so many of us will never forget.

Conditions are deteriorating and the Governor is expected to declare a state of emergency.

We’ll expect at least an inch an hour, colder temperatures and gusts of up to 41 mph later this afternoon.

I hope you’re prepared.
