In this episode, our guest Chrissy Warrilow, meteorologist at Georgia Public Broadcasting, forecasts winter weather and shares tips on how to prepare for potential threats.

Winter storms are most likely to occur January through March with the highest risk in February. The farther north in the state and the higher the elevation, the more likely it will be cold enough for frozen or freezing precipitation to fall and cause problems.  But, wherever you live in Georgia, it’s likely that you’ll encounter some form of severe weather so it’s critical that you take the necessary steps to prepare. Tune in to learn:

  • what emergency supplies you’ll need to prepare for the unexpected this season
  • how to protect yourself and your loved ones by developing a customized plan
  • about the tools and resources that will help you stay informed about threats in your area

  1. Wonderful tips there. We need to be vigilant and well-prepared especially during winter time, when extreme weather may become more prevalent with global warming. One can never be too prepared, I even get my supplies of eczema creams ready for this winter season. :)

    Hopefully everyone in North Ga. learned a valuable lesson from last winter. We need to be prepared because you never know when our winter is going to be worse than we usually expect.

  3. Great tips. It’s pretty mild here in middle GA, but you can never be too prepared.

  4. Thanks for this!!! Winter will be much enjoyable if we are really prepared to face this season..
