A Dreary Day Friday but a Brighter Weekend Lies Ahead

Posted Friday AM, February 25, 2022

The overnight winter storm system that moved through east-central Ohio over the last 12 hours has shifted off to the east this morning. We will continue to see a small chance for a light snow shower or flurries during the rest of the morning. Generally, our weather will be dry today but expect lots of cloudiness through the rest of the day.

As I talked about in yesterday’s update, our area saw very little in the way of frozen precipitation with the system. Reports from the Dover – New Phila area was all rain-related. I’ve not received any reports from northern parts of the county.

Keep in mind that areas north of the Valley DID receive freezing rain and sleet. Travel may be a little slick in spots if you make your way north.

Last night’s rainfall did add to our local flooding issues, however. Flood Warnings remain in effect for parts of the Valley this morning and the Tusky will run high again for a day or two.

Friday will be another one of those backward days. We will see the day’s warmest temperature this morning. Temperatures will decrease through the rest of the day ending up in the upper-20s by sunset this evening. A gusty breeze will make it feel colder.

Much brighter weather will set up for our weekend. Sunday afternoon could bring a small chance for spotty flurries but I’m not overly convinced that will happen. Temperatures will moderate some as well.

Quiet and dry weather looks to unfold for much of next week – good news for those areas experiencing high water and flooding.

I’ll keep you updated with the Valley’s most comprehensive forecast on TUSCWeather.net. If you like using the website and app I’d appreciate you telling your friends. Have a great weekend!
