Arctic Blast Update

Posted: Updated:
Toledo, OH -

UPDATE:  Temperatures in NW Ohio are now at or above zero with wind chills in the -5 to -15 range.  We're still under a wind chill advisory until 9am, but conditions are now beginning to improve.  Please be very careful if you have to travel over the next few days with residual ice and snow on the roadways.

_________________________________________________________________________

We didn't break the all-time record low for Toledo (-20 on 1/21/1984), but we did break two daily record low temperatures the past two days.  We hit -15 late Monday evening, breaking the old low of -14 set in 1884.  Then we hit -14 just after midnight today, breaking the old record of -6 set in 1970.  Pretty impressive even though we missed the all-time record!

A ***WIND CHILL ADVISORY*** remains in effect through 9am for the entire area.  Temperatures will hold steady or slowly rise into the single digits by morning hours of Wednesday.  This, combined with southwest winds of 5-15 mph, will create wind chill readings of -5 to -15.  Still a bit dangerous, but not as cold as they were this morning (-40 to -45).  The wind chills will rise to above zero tomorrow afternoon.  We'll have an actual high temperature in the teens with a few snow flurries possible.

Light snow showers are expected on Thursday, especially late in the day.  We could see up to 1/2" of fluffy accumulation.  Temperatures will rise up into the mid 20s.  We're looking at mid 30s on Friday and near 40 for the weekend with some rain moving in for Saturday.

Stay with 13abc and 13abc.com for the latest on this Arctic Blast.  We'll have the latest on snow emergency levels, school/business closings and the latest forecast as we rise out of the deep freeze.

Stay safe and warm.
