Slow moving storm system to bring very wet Friday

A slow moving storm system with plenty of moisture will start moving through the area this evening through a good part of Saturday, according to the Wood County Emergency Management Agency.  Forecast models indicate an abundance of moisture with this storm system which could produce heavy rainfall at times especially on Friday into Friday night.  Isolated areas could see upwards of 2 inches (and remotes chances of isolated areas in excess of 2 inches) between this evening and Saturday evening.

Severe weather (other than the potential for isolated flash flooding/flooding issues) is not expected in Northwest Ohio.  The storm system should exit the area by late Saturday for a much drier Sunday.

The Weather Prediction Center which looks at long term forecasts indicate that the Great Lakes area is likely to return to very warm/hot conditions (and not necessarily dry) by the middle of next week and continue through at least the July 4 period.
