KNMI has released a yellow warning for Noord Brabant for Wednesday from 6:00 to 18:00 hrs. KNMI is the meteorological institute of Netherlands. So what does that mean for us for tomorrow?
KNMI has released a weather warning at 17: 57 today which states that there is a chance of 1 to 3 cm snow and there is an increased risk of slipperiness on the road due to snowfall. All road users may be affected. Drive cautiously and follow weather reports and warnings are the other instructions from KNMI.
The intensity of snow can suddenly change and differ greatly over short distances. This is treacherous for traffic because the condition of the road surface can also differ greatly from place to place. When the showers are accompanied by gusts of wind, conditions for traffic can deteriorate. Snow showers in rush hours cause more problems than snowfall in the quiet night hours. Of course, train traffic is expected to take a hit. Fewer trains and delays can be expected.
Do schools need to take action for a yellow warning? Likely not. Usually, code Orange triggers action. Especially for international schools compared to neighbourhood schools because of the long commute to school. However, if code orange is issued then schools consider action.
So, what can you do?
- Be alert
- Watch out for weather warnings
- Drive cautiously
And above all enjoy the snow…maybe it’s time to bring out the child within us.
