    "Storm" is countable, so you need some kind of determiner. Alternatively, you could use a different noun - for example "Because of adverse winds...." (or, in this case, "Because of snowy conditions...).

    The tense of the verb needs to be different, as you specify the time - would you like to think again and suggest an improvement?
