While we are basking in above normal temperatures in Northern Ohio this Valentine’s Day week, it was a far different story ten years ago this week.
A strong area of low pressure early Valentine’s Day morning 2007 was located along the Ohio River bordering Ohio and West Virginia. North and west of the center, heavy snow and ice was occurring. Down to the south and east, severe weather was occurring with multiple tornadoes being confirmed from this storm.
There was plenty of snow to be had across Northern Ohio. Many reports of snowfall over ten inches were reported across the Buckeye State.
These images are from the National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio. Northwest Ohio took the brunt of the snow from this storm. Over one foot of snow was reported across the region. Down in Central Ohio towards Dayton, a mix of significant ice and snow caused travel problems in that region. Closer to the Ohio River, the precipitation was mostly in the form of rain. This goes to show that we can get about every type of weather this time of year in Ohio.
