The National Weather Service in northern Indiana issued a Winter Weather Advisory for northwest Ohio and northeast Indiana for snow, blowing and drifting snow, which is in effect from 1-10 p.m. today.
A frontal boundary will move through the region today, bringing periods of light to moderate snowfall to the advisory area from mid-morning to mid-afternoon. Overall accumulations will average between 1 and 2 inches in most areas, mainly north of U.S. 6. As the front passes, winds will become northwest and increase to 10-20 mph with a few gusts approaching 30 mph. This will cause widespread blowing and drifting of the freshly fallen snow and already existing snow pack in mainly rural areas. Secondary and some primary roads could become partially impassable in spots due to the drifting snow as well as locally reduced visibilities in stronger wind gusts due to blowing. Winds will slowly subside this evening, but some drifting snow could linger into the overnight hours.
Ohio counties in the advisory area include: Defiance, Henry, Paulding, Putnam, Fulton and Williams.
