Higher temperatures help with snow removal on roads

Tuesday’s temperatures were higher than they have been in weeks, helping snowplow crews as they cleared Monday’s snowfall from roads.

Most of the snow on roads melted away Tuesday, Hancock County Engineer Chris Long said, as the temperature climbed to the upper 30s under fair skies.

The Findlay area received 3 to 4 inches of sleet and snow Monday and Monday night. Winds caused some blowing and drifting of snow Monday night, but wind speeds decreased and caused fewer problems on Tuesday, Long said.

Wednesday’s forecast calls for a high of 39 degrees and a low of about 26.

Thursday’s high could be near 50. Between a quarter-inch and a half-inch of rain is possible during the day, and another quarter-inch to half-inch of rain is possible Thursday night, according to the National Weather Service.

No Blanchard River flooding is predicted. 

Friday’s forecast calls for a sunny day with a high near 37 and a low around 28.
