Keep your snow shovels handy

Brad Gilbert, Wood County EMA director has issued the following advisory:

A very active storm tract through the Ohio Valley and the Lower Great Lakes will bring three storm systems with accumulating snow to our area this week.

Storm No. 1 will move into the area late this evening and into the overnight hours.  1.5”-2” of fluffy type snow can be expected.  Tuesday morning’s commute may be slippery.

Storm No. 2 will move into the area late Tuesday evening and into the morning hours of Wednesday.  0.5”-1.5” of new snowfall can be expected.  Wednesday morning’s commute will likely be slippery as well.  (Heavier snow in Central/Southern Ohio and into NE Ohio)

Storm No. 3 will move into the are late Thursday and possibly continue into the early weekend.  This will be a strong storm system that will have the potential for heavy snow; however, the exact storm path is not known yet, so we will continue to monitor this storm as it develops and moves across the country.  Again, this storm may have more significant snowfall if the storm path puts the heavier snow bands across NW Ohio.  More information on this storm later in the week.
