TOLEDO, OH (WTVG) – Thursday 2/22 - 7:40am Update:

Winter Weather Advisory continues through 1pm today for Putnam, Allen, Hancock, Wyandot, Seneca, and Huron Counties. A mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain will create some tricky travel during the morning hours. Temperatures will be above freezing this afternoon with melting. -Meteorologist Ross Ellet

Wed 2/21 - 11:40pm Update

Again, no big changes to the forecast. If anything, perhaps a downward shift in the snow and an upward shift in the sleet for the maps posted above. Timing still looks good from the overnight into Thursday morning with dry weather returning for the afternoon.

Please plan some extra time for travel Thursday morning in the areas expected to get the wintry mix.

Thank you.

Wednesday, 2/21/18 8am update:
A slick morning commute is likely south of US 24 Thursday morning. A narrow band of precipitation will push north after midnight Wednesday night and will last through late morning Thursday. Temperatures will fall into the upper 20s to low 30s across the area at the same time. Snow is possible along US 24. Snow and sleet accumulations are expected to stay under 1". A narrow band of moderate to heavy snow and sleet along with a glaze of ice is possible from Paulding, Bowling Green, to Fremont and Sandusky. 1-2" of snow accumulation is possible in that zone. Moderate to heavy freezing rain is possible at times in Allen, Hancock, Wyandot, southern Seneca, and southern Huron Counties. Up to 1/4" of ice accumulations is possible especially on elevated surfaces by noon Thursday. If this system shifts north or south slightly, the expected totals would also shift. We will have updates if and when that forecast changes. Also there is the chance for freezing rain on Friday morning before 9am north of the turnpike. Saturday and early Sunday will bring more rain, but dry weather returns Sunday afternoon through mid next week. -Meteorologist Ross Ellet
