We may have “sprung ahead” this past weekend, and spring, according to the calendar is only a little more than a week away, but old man winter isn’t quite ready to release his icy grip yet.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Williams, Defiance, Henry, Paulding, Fulton, and Putnam counties.
Heavy snow is expected to fall late tonight into Wednesday. Moderate to heavy snow will overspread the area tonight according to forecasters, who say it will continue into Wednesday as a strengthening low pressure system tracks east through southern Indiana and Ohio.
Precipitation in much of our area, and especially right here in Bryan, will likely begin as a period of rain before changing over to all snow from northwest to southeast.
The weather service says we should brace for snow accumulations of between 4 and 8 inches.
It will be windy too, with gusts to 35 mph, creating blowing and drifting snow and hazardous travel.
