Spring is in the air

Spring is in the air, with the official start just weeks away, but you wouldn’t know it in Ashtabula. A winter storm warning, prompted by more than a foot of snow predicted in some areas, expired at noon Friday, according to the NWS. Early morning commuters woke up to “difficult” driving conditions, as heavy snow quickly piled up and strong winds forced motorists to navigate blizzard like weather. Expect calmer, warmer weather this weekend, forecasters say, with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid-to-upper 30s, Saturday and Sunday.
