Cold front will cause thunderstorms later today

Brad Gilbert, Emergency Management Agency director for Wood County, has issued the following advisory:

After record setting warmth in NW Ohio yesterday, we will experience ONE more very warm day before a very strong cold front moves into the area late tonight (Oct. 10).  Scattered showers and some thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon with thunderstorms becoming likely this evening as the cold front approaches the area.  Some of the storms could be strong to even severe.  The SPC has placed Wood County in the “Marginal” risk category for severe weather this evening.  Damaging straight-line winds will be the primary threat.  Please monitor weather conditions late this afternoon and evening.
