Topsy-turvy weather ahead

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

Roller coaster weather this week could cause some potential issues.  Rain will move into the area this afternoon and early evening with the chance of some lightning and thunder as well. 

Cooler temperatures on Tuesday and overnight into early Wednesday morning will bring freezing rain and some light snow before turning over to rain Wednesday afternoon.  Surfaces will likely be slippery for the Wednesday morning commute.

Another surge of warm air will move into the area on Thursday and bring rain which could be heavy at times.  This could lead to some creek/river flooding issues and ice jam issues towards the end of the week.  Property owners along the creeks and rivers should monitor conditions closely this week especially on Thursday and Friday.  Cooler more seasonable temperatures and a chance of snow will return by Friday and into the weekend.
