Freezing rain, then heavy rain, & then sunshine on Saturday

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

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather ADVISORY for Wood County from 1:00 a.m. on Wednesday until 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday.  Light rain tonight will change to freezing rain before changing back to all rain mid-morning on Wednesday.  0.10” of ice accumulation will be possible making surfaces very slippery especially for the morning commute.  Please use extra caution and allow extra time for travel Wednesday morning.

Another storm system will move through the area on Thursday bringing warm temperatures and potentially heavy rain.  Flooding issues such as ponding of water on roadways will be likely and flooding of ditches, streams, creeks, and rivers may also be possible by the end of the week.  Please be aware of potential road closures in low lying areas near creeks and rivers and monitor conditions closely especially if you live near creeks and rivers.

On a bright note…SUNSHINE on Saturday!
