Weather Service: 100 percent guarantee of more snow for Toledo area

You don't get many locked-down, iron-clad guarantees like this from the federal government any longer: The National Weather Service says on its Web site there is a 100 percent guarantee of more snow for the Toledo area on Thursday.

Most of the additional white stuff should arrive before 1 p.m. Accumulation is not expected to be more than two inches, the weather service said.

Thursday's high is not expected to top 15 degrees, but the wind chill -- the combination of wind and temperature -- is expected to feel like -5 degrees during the daytime and as frigid as -16 Thursday night.

The National Weather Service calls for conditions to be "blustery," with a northeast wind of 17 to 21 mph.

The high on Friday is expected to be only 12 degrees.

Saturday and Sunday will have slightly warmer daytime temperatures, at or near 30 degrees, with at least a 50 percent chance of snow at some point of each of those days, according to the weather service's Web site.

Bowling Green Safety Director John Fawcett has declared a snow emergency, meaning that all cars left on designated snow streets in that college town are subject to being towed.

The Ohio Department of Transportation said it was calling in more crews to help clear roads.

Drivers should allow for extra time and take it easy navigating along snow-covered roads, the department said.
