Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Falling and 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.

A Winter Weather Advisory means wintry precipitation will cause
primarily travel difficulties. Expect slick roads and potentially
hazardous driving conditions. Allow extra time to reach your
destination and exercise defensive driving.
