Brad Gilbert, Wood County EMA director has issued the following advisory:
A “clipper” type storm system will move just to our south tonight and into the early morning hours of Saturday. The heavier snow bands will stay well south of Wood County; however, light snow will fall across Wood County tonight as a result of this storm system. 2” or less will fall across the area by Saturday morning which is enough to make roads slippery once again, so please use extra caution when driving tonight and early Saturday morning. 3” – 5” of snow will fall across west central and central Ohio with this storm system if you plan on traveling south tonight or tomorrow. Those areas are under a Winter Weather Advisory. Very cold arctic air will once again move into the area behind this storm system creating a dry but very cold New Years weekend. Please check on elderly neighbors, pets, and other functional needs people this weekend as temperatures plumet below zero once again.
