Good morning,

A strong storm system with a lot of moisture will be moving across the eastern part of the country late tonight and on Wednesday. Fortunately, NW Ohio will be in an area of the storm that will have a smaller impact (compared to other areas) from this storm. With that said, we are still looking at some winter weather Wednesday morning that will cause slippery conditions. Light snow will move into the Wood County area (southwesterly end first) around daybreak Wednesday morning. Total snow accumulations should only be around 1”. There will be a period of time in the mid to late morning hours that snow will change over to a mixture of sleet and very light freezing rain before turning to all rain in the afternoon. Again, not a huge winter storm for this area,but enough to cause some morning commute issues and another tough decision process for the local schools.

At this hour, the NWS is reviewing criteria for a possible Winter Weather Advisory (which is already posted in the counties to our west and south), but forecasters are unsure at this time if conditions will be bad enough to warrant an Advisory or not. They will make a final decision this afternoon. Slowly warming temperatures this week and into the weekend will bring rain along with a chance of thunderstorms on the weekend.

Sincerely,

Brad

Good morning,

Ice storm conditions are slowly improving this morning with main roadways being mostly wet at this time. The Sheriff has cancelled the Level 1 snow emergency as roads are passable but most secondary roads are still slushy. The NWS has issued a Wind ADVISORY for Wood County from 7:00pm tonight until 4:00pm Wednesday. Winds will increase this afternoon and into the overnight hours with occasional gusts 45-50 mph. Winds may cause additional power outage issues especially if ice does not thaw off of power lines and trees this afternoon. A Flood WATCH continues until 4:00am on Wednesday. A cold front will move through the area tonight dropping temperatures drastically causing a re-freezing issue on surfaces. Light snow (around 1”) will also move back into the area in the overnight hours. EMA will remain in situational awareness especially when it comes to the sporadic power outages around the county. Please monitor conditions closely over the next 24 hours and be prepared for ponding on roadways and potential flooding and power outage issues.
