This past weekend we saw severe winter weather in the Northeast region of the US. This week, a new developing system may affect a large area of the Midwest. This severe weather may impact our operations, from specimen logistics to testing at our laboratories. We have proactively planned adjusted staffing schedules and operations to minimize the impact of these weather-related delays.
The national weather service has issued winter storm warnings along the path of this storm covering large areas of the Midwest from Colorado to Michigan. Winter storm Landon – which will kick off Tuesday, February 1 – will not only bring snow, but arctic temperatures, sleet, and freezing rain.
Additional warnings are likely, as the spread of the storms head towards the already heavily hit Northeast US. This storm system is set to run through the end of this week.
