February Morning Snow Squall

A quick moving band of snow created near-white out conditions Wednesday morning. Snow totals ranged from no snow outside of the bands over Defiance/Williams/Henry/Hancock counties to over 2 inches near Perrysburg. The snow was caused by a small piece of energy moving through the atmosphere and enhanced by the Great Lakes.

 Police reported multiple accidents on Toledo interstates as the snow rates increased for a short time (very similar to what happened the past Saturday http://www.toledonewsnow.com/story/21223929/traffic-alert-us-23-northbound-shutdown-multiple-car-accidents ). Remember if you encounter one of these heavy bands of snow, to give extra room in front of you to the next car.

Here is the timelapse of StormTrack Doppler and several local cameras as the snow squall came through Wednesday morning. Enjoy!
