USCG Marblehead recognized three Put-in-Bay Volunteer Fire Department members for mutual aid assistance with Catawba Island Fire/Rescue Marine. PiBVFD participated in the ice rescue efforts of fishermen stranded on an ice floe off Catawba Island State Park on 9 March 2019.  During the time of the call east winds were topping out at around 30 knots with rapidly changing conditions.  Luckily, with the quick reaction, everybody was brought into safety in two hours.

Put-in-Bay Weather Outlook

ol man winterIt appears ol’ man winter will put a shadow on spring’s arrival.  National Weather Service Cleveland prepared this statement at 7:33pm this evening:


“Even though Spring will officially be here by the end of the week, it will feel and look still a little bit like winter with colder than average temperatures and scattered light snow showers.  A sharp upper level trough and upper level low will move across the Great Lakes Region into the Mid-Atlantic Region Thursday into Friday.  We will have clouds around and colder weather with scattered rain showers and snow showers.  Even through surface temperatures may be above freezing in the 30s to lower 40s, cold air aloft associated with the upper level trough will develop instability snow showers.”
