We are committed to providing our customers with the most up-to-date information for all potential delivery service disruptions.

At this time, we are closely monitoring the winter storm that is headed into the Midwest this weekend.  We are anticipating potential delays of 24 to 48 hours depending on weather and road conditions.

Weather reports are predicting snow will spread from South Dakota and Nebraska to Iowa, northern and central Kansas and northern Missouri on Friday.  During Friday night, snow will then spread eastward across central and northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin to central and northern Indiana. During Saturday, snow will continue to press eastward across southern Michigan and northern and central Ohio to the central Appalachians.  A moderate to heavy snowfall is forecast, ranging from a few inches to as much as a foot or so from parts of the central and northern Plains to the Midwest. Portions of northeastern Ohio, including the Cleveland metro area, may receive 1-2 feet of snow from the storm.

The storm will continue to the interior Northeast this weekend. Up to 40 inches is projected in parts of northern New England while close to 30 inches of snow is likely to fall on parts of central and northern New York state to parts of Pennsylvania. Strong winds during the height of the storm from late Saturday to Sunday will cause extensive blowing and drifting snow, blizzard conditions, power outages, and broken tree limbs.
