The first substantial snowfall of the winter season hit the area over the weekend. The snow began Saturday night and lasted into Sunday.

A Winter Weather Advisory was issued for the entire area and road conditions became treacherous. A Level 1 snow emergency was also issued.

All Fulton County schools, with the exception of Swanton Local Schools, were closed on Monday due to the road conditions. Swanton’s start was delayed two hours.

A general 2-5 inches of snow fell on the area. Toledo Express Airport reported over 4 inches of snow. Snowfall for the winter is still below normal.

The heaviest snowfall accumulations were noted roughly along and south of the US 30 corridor where reports of 5 to 9 inches of snowfall were received, according to the National Weather Service.

After a brief warm up to near 40 degrees this week, more winter weather is possible. Long range computer models are showing that temperatures below zero are possible along with a weekend storm somewhere in the eastern half of the United States.
