White Christmas in the forecast

A white Christmas is possible based on a weather updated from Bradley Gilbert, Wood County EMA director.

Gilbert reports:

“Two storm systems will impact our area this weekend.  Both will bring a chance of accumulating snow.  The storm tracks have shifted slightly since last night.

“Details are as follows:

“A storm system will move to the southeast of NW Ohio late tonight into Saturday morning.  Snow on the northwest side of the storm will just barely impact Wood County bringing a dusting of snow to around 1” in some areas (especially southeast Wood County) by mid-day Saturday.

“Another storm system will impact NW Ohio Sunday afternoon and evening.  Snow accumulation on Sunday will be 1” – 3”.  Christmas day will start out cloudy with some areas of sunshine by late morning and into the afternoon with colder temperatures.”

Arctic cold will settle into the area for Tuesday through most of the week.
