Here is the forecast for our area. Not much has changed from last night. The forecast is still predicted a potential significant ice event with total accumulations of 0.05 to 0.75 inches with SPIA index level of category 1 and 2. Remember level 1 is generally localized small outages that are normally resolved in a few hours. Category 2 predicts larger localized outages with the possibility of feeder level outages. These are typically resolved in 12-24 hours. In both categories road conditions are not the best and will be affected.
As you will notice if things hold steady any issues TCEC has are likely to be in the Beaver County area. As always this is just a forecast and could change at any time.
