SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- It's turning warmer, but winter isn't far away.
That's the message from Gov. Gary Herbert, who has declared Nov. 1-7 Winter Weather Preparedness Week.
Utah got a blast of winter last week, and Herbert says now is a good time to get ready.
A website contains some advice on preparing homes and cars for a long winter.
The website is a collaborative effort of the National Weather Service, the Utah departments of transportation and public safety, the U.S. Forest Service, Utah Avalanche Center and the American Red Cross.
