Our final forecast before Mother Nature releases the icy Kraken, things are looking much better for SWOK.

We've been keeping a very close eye on these forecasts for the last few days, as they tend to improve the closer to a weather event you get. Luckily, we've amassed from an original prognosis of 'inches of ice' to a few slick and hazardous spots here and there.

That of course does not mean roads will be safe enough to make normal travel on, or that your electricity won't fail sometime throughout the weekend. This is an impressive storm, and as we've seen in the past, a forecast is only as accurate as Mother Nature decides it to be.

Be prepared with food and shelter, blankets, water, etc... and slow down as you make your commute throughout the weekend.
