Snow expected for Wednesday

National Weather Service issues winter-storm watch for day after Christmas


Toledo still has a chance for a white Christmas, but the more serious threat for accumulating snow appears to be on Wednesday.

Travel in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan could be tricky later today, with freezing drizzle and light snow predicted by the National Weather Service. But snow accumulation overnight is not expected to exceed half an inch.

The weather service's North Webster, Ind., office has issued a winter-storm watch for Wednesday, predicting between 4 and 7 inches of snow in an area that includes Fulton, Henry, Defiance, Williams, and other northwest Ohio counties west of I-75.

Other weather maps show that snowfall associated with a coastal storm that is expected to deliver more than a foot of snow to upstate New York on Wednesday and Thursday, along with a possible ice storm in the Washington area. But for now, the "snow" forecast for Toledo contains no accumulation estimates; forecasters at the National Weather Service office in Cleveland said they do not expect to issue their first detailed storm forecast for the area that includes Toledo until sometime later today.
