Heavy snow in the forecast for Friday night and Saturday

@crescentnews crescent@crescent-news.com Published:

Significant snow is possible Friday night and Saturday, according to a special weather statement issued today from the National Weather Service in northern Indiana.

Current computer model solutions indicate a potent upper air disturbance over southern California will eject out of the southern Rockies tonight and then lift northeast through the Ohio valley on Saturday. On this track, a band of significant snowfall would be favored to develop Friday night and continue into Saturday afternoon. Current projections would indicate a potential for 4 to 6 inches of snow along and south of a Rochester, Ind., to Toledo line. However, small fluctuations in the track and intensity of this system could significantly alter potential snow accumulations.

This statement is for the following counties in Ohio: Defiance, Henry, Paulding, Putnam, Fulton, Williams, Van Wert and Allen.

Persons planning travel Friday night or Saturday should monitor later forecasts and statements should winter storms watches or warnings become necessary.
