Hazardous Weather Outlook

The National Weather Ser­vice has issued a haz­ardous weather out­look for a good part of our area, includ­ing Williams, Defi­ance, Henry, Put­nam, Ful­ton, Van Wert, and Allen Coun­ties.

Although the weather fore­cast­ers say any accu­mu­la­tions will likely be light, the now is expected to spread across the area with 1 to 2 inches pos­si­ble, then change over to freez­ing rain by mid-morning, and rain this after­noon as tem­per­a­tures rise above freez­ing.

That ice though, could accu­mu­late a bit before the chang­over occurs. The good news… any threat of heavy rain, which we were con­cerned about as of yes­ter­day, no longer exists. How­ever, there are con­cerns about ice jam flood­ing and also some pos­si­ble flood­ing on the banks of many frozen creeks and streams.

Keep your radio set right here, as the sit­u­a­tion changes, we will keep you updated.
