PORT CLINTON – After a weekend of snow and ice, the weather cleared up to make for a bright, sunny and relatively warm Valentine’s Day on Wednesday.
The quick turnaround toward the nicer weather also helped local business as the holiday approached.
Mary Snyder, of Mary’s Blossom Shoppe in downtown Port Clinton, said business tends to pick up around this time of year, but the weather can be a struggle.
“It’s been wonderful,” Snyder said of business this week. “The weather’s fabulous. That’s really a bonus.”
Though the weekend’s snow and ice mix was followed up by some stints of freezing rain on Tuesday, much of Wednesday was dry throughout the Ottawa County area as temperatures rose to a high of 44, according to the National Weather Service.
“It’s wonderful to have the great weather. That’s something we fight with every year,” Snyder said. “The flowers are beautiful. It’s easier to get through it if things aren’t fighting you the whole way.”
The rosy weather may not be sticking around for long, however. While the warmer temperatures are likely to continue rising into Thursday, the National Weather Service in Cleveland is forecasting rain to follow.
