Plan to be outdoors this weekend? Check the weather

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

An unsettled and warming weather pattern will continue across the area from this weekend into at least the first half of next week.  A quick shot of cooler air on Friday will transition via rain showers (low chance of lightning) Friday evening to warming conditions for the weekend.  Warmer air will cause instability which will trigger showers and thunderstorms on and off throughout the weekend.  Additional atmospheric conditions late Saturday afternoon into Saturday evening will allow some thunderstorms to become strong to even severe at times across the lower Great Lakes.  The SPC has extreme NW Ohio in the “Marginal” risk category for severe weather later on Saturday.  Please plan on monitoring weather conditions this weekend especially if you have outdoor plans.
