Winter weather update on week’s second storm

Brad Gilbert, Wood County EMA director has issued the following advisory:

The next storm system will impact Ohio overnight tonight (Feb. 6) and into at least the first half of Wednesday.  Snow will begin well after midnight tonight and begin to taper off by early afternoon on Wednesday.  Expected snowfall is around 2” total for this storm.  Once again, Northeast, Central, and Southeast Ohio will see the biggest impacts from this storm with 4”+ expected in those areas.  Obviously, this storm will have more of a solid impact on the Wednesday morning commute due to falling snow.  Winds are not expected to be an issue with this storm system.

We are still monitoring the Thursday night/Friday storm system.  At this time it is starting to look like a few inches of new snow, but the exact path is still underdetermined, so forecasted snow totals could still go up or down.
