It's going to be another rainy, windy day across the region today, according to forecasters with the National Weather Service in North Webster, Ind.
Temperatures which are starting out in the low- to mid-40s will struggle to reach 50 with perhaps as much as another quarter-inch of rain expected, forecasters said. The showers are expected to end tonight.
With parts of the region getting as much as 4 inches of rain, some roads may see ponding of water, or water flowing across roadways, but no major flooding is predicted, Van Wert County Emergency Management Director Rick McCoy said Wednesday night.Calls to area police and sheriff's departments at 10 p.m. Wednesday showed water on some roads, but no flooding. The lack of much rain the past few weeks will help avoid problems. “The ditches were down,” McCoy said. “It's going to take a lot to fill them up.”He said the low-pressure system moving through the area would be a real problem with lower temperatures. “It would be a major winter storm if it was cold,” he said.â€¨
