Wood County’s next weather event will begin today with a drizzly rain changing over to snow around 1 a.m.. Luckily, because the high today will be 40 F, the initial 1” (1 a.m. to 7 a.m.) is not expected to create travel concerns. This will change starting around 7 a.m. as snow fall increases. Forecast models indicate 2” between 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. with an additional 2” between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.. For most of Wood County snow will begin to decrease around 6 p.m. with an additional 1” accumulation.
During the majority of the day Wednesday, wind speeds will remain 10-15 MPH with some gusty conditions during the early hours of Thursday morning. If traveling early Thursday morning(after midnight) blowing snow can be an issue.
Currently, to the west of Wood County (parts if Defiance, Fulton and Williams Counties) the snow totals are expected to be 7” to 8” of accumulating snow. They are also expecting more issues with blowing snow. Since Wood County is on the dividing line, a shift in the weather system could be better or worse for us.

Please continue to monitor weather conditions for any changes. Take time today to plan accordingly if you will be traveling tomorrow and/or responsible for those who may be on our roads.
The EMA will be monitoring for any changes and provide any updates.

The Safer Ohio School Tip Line is a free safety resource available to all Ohio schools. The tip line is an anonymous reporting system that accepts both calls and texts 24 hours a day.
This tip line allows students and adults to anonymously share information with school officials and law enforcement about threats to student safety—whether that involves a threatened mass incident or harm to a single student.

Things to report to the tip line include (but are not limited to):

· Bullying incidents;
· Withdrawn student behaviors;
· Verbal or written threats observed toward students, faculty or schools;
· Weapon/suspicious devices on or near school grounds;
· Gang related activities;
· Unusual/suspicious behavior of students or staff;
· Self-harm or suicidal sentiments; and
· Any other school safety related concerns.”

Every tip can remain anonymous. School safety analysts may ask for additional information, but the caller can remain secret or leave his or her contact information for later follow-up.

Calls or texts to 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764) are answered by analysts within Ohio Homeland Security. If action is needed, the analysts immediately forward information to local school officials, law enforcement agencies and the Ohio School Safety Center (OSSC) for action and follow up.

The OSSC partners with the Ohio Department of Education to follow up with affected school and law enforcement agencies to make sure that the incident is investigated, action is taken and resources and supports are provided when necessary.
