Now is the time to prepare for adverse spring and summer weather

Severe Weather Awareness Week, through Saturday, will provide an opportunity to take a look at understanding of and preparedness for adverse spring and summer weather.

The National Weather Service will be providing daily tips on types of adverse weather and precautions to take when there are Alerts and Warnings.
