Marshall County Emergency Management Agency Director jack Garner released several key weather-related notes Wednesday afternoon. 

The Travel Advisory remains in place for Marshall County. Garner said many rural county roads are still covered with a sheet of ice and some snow.  He said it’s not too bad as long as people drive slow.

The National Weather Service is predicting 2 to 3 inches of snowfall late tonight and into tomorrow morning for much of Marshall County. That snowfall will be followed up with another 2 to 3 inches of lake effect snow Thursday night lasting into Friday. Garner said, “That additional snow will make backroads even more slick and can also cause some brief travel issues in towns and on highways. This is another reason why we haven’t pulled the travel advisory.”

Wind chills are rebounding back into the positives today but are expected to plummet once again Friday night.  It’s looking like windchills could be -10 during dark hours Friday night and into Saturday morning and then down to 18 below on Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Garner said the maps show a familiar story… the farther north you are, the more snow you’ll get.
