...BLIZZARD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM EST THIS EVENING...
...WIND CHILL WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM EST THIS
EVENING...

* WHAT...For the Blizzard Warning, ground blizzard conditions. Winds
  gusting as high as 45 mph. For the Wind Chill Warning, dangerously
  cold wind chills. Wind chills as low as 65 below zero.

* WHERE...Northeast Aroostook and Northwest Aroostook Counties.

* WHEN...Until 7 PM EST this evening.

* IMPACTS...Plan on slippery road conditions with drifting snow.
  Widespread blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. The
  hazardous conditions could impact the Friday morning and evening
  commutes. Isolated to scattered power outages are possible. The
  dangerously cold wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin
  in as little as 5 minutes.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...In addition to low wind chills, areas of
  blowing snow could cause whiteout conditions, particularly across
  open areas exposed to northwest winds. Blowing and drifting snow
  could make travel very difficult. If you must travel have a winter
  survival kit and if you get stranded, stay in your vehicle.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Blowing snow with strong winds and poor
visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout conditions,
making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If you must
travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get stranded,
stay with your vehicle.

The latest road conditions for Maine can be obtained by going to
newengland511.org.

A Wind Chill Warning means the combination of very cold air and the
wind will create dangerously low wind chill values. Frostbite can
occur quickly and even hypothermia or death if precautions are not
taken.
