Winter Weather Emergencies

Northern New Mexico is expected to experience another La Nina season for snowfall, which typically means that snowfall incidents are few and the amount of snowfall is less than in other years. However, don't be lulled into thinking a La Nina year means "no snow" - Los Alamos County could still very well experience at least two or three severe snowstorms this winter. When snow seems likely, listen to forecasts on radio or T.V., tune into NOAA Weather Radio or visit the National Weather Service web site (see links to the left).

Given our altitude, we highly recommend that citizens be prepared for winter storms, including the possibility of 2-3 days of isolation due to above-normal snow pack. Prepare your family and home for winter emergencies by weatherizing your home and your automobiles, and be sure to create a disaster supplies kit.
