I saw a post on the Rossford Information site that states that two juveniles were arrested for smoking marijuana inside the library on 1/21/2020. Just to dispel any rumors, two juveniles were charged with possession of marijuana after being observed smoking marijuana outside of the Rossford Public Library (on the property).

❄ Winter Weather Advisory ❄ Update
Wood County is expecting winter weather this weekend. Snow is expected to begin sometime Friday evening into Saturday morning. Currently there is a potential for 3 inches by 8am Saturday. Around 11am a light wintery mix of sleet and freezing rain will continue through Saturday afternoon. This will be followed by windy conditions Saturday into Saturday night as a strong cold front moves across our area.
If you need to travel Saturday expect poor road conditions as well as potential delays. You should take extra care as sidewalks will be slippery increasing the chance of injuries due to falling.

We will continue monitor conditions and provide updates as they become available.

Between now and midnight Wood County is expected to get little more than 2 tenths of an inch of rain. Around 5am the rain is anticipated to increase at a rate of about a half inch of rain every 6 hours until midnight (2.5-2.75” total). Currently, the best chance of thunderstorms is Saturday between 10am and 3pm but the possibility of thunderstorms will continue until 3am.
Saturday the wind will begin to increase to 50mph gusts with sustained winds of 45-55 mph near and after midnight through Sunday morning.
We have been told from NWS Cleveland Wood County can handle rainfall up to 3” with little flooding. At this point we are still only expecting minor flooding in Wood County. Luckily NWS North Webster in Indiana has decreased the rainfall for counties to our west. This will decrease the flow after the rain event coming through our county.

We will continue to monitor for any changes and updates.

Unfortunately we are projected to get 2-3 inches of rain over the next few days (Thursday night through Saturday night). There are still some models where the system could drop giving us rain rather than snow. NWS Cleveland is asking we continue to monitor for updates as the system gets closer.

The ability for rain to drain will be key to prevent flooding. Again, now is the time to make sure sump pumps are in working order, drains and drainage systems are clear of debris. If you are in an area which typically floods, today is the day to remove anything that could be damaged.
