Heavy snow, blizzard conditions marked Northern Ohio's Valentine's Day of 2007.

The snow began on the morning of the Feb. 13 and finally let up during the morning of Valentine's Day.

Snow totals approaching two feet were common along and east of Interstate 71 from Cleveland to Mansfield.  

Snow fall ranged from 12 inches near Toledo to a swath of 17 inch and greater amounts from Mansfield up through Medina to Richfield.

Temperatures were in the 20s while the snow was falling, but in the nights following the snow, temperatures dipped into the single digits.

On the 15th, Cleveland Hopkins Airport dipped to -4 degrees F.

Wind gusts of 30-35 mph were also common, blowing the newly fallen snow around.

Low pressure, often labeled as a panhandle hook from its origin near the panhandles of Oklahoma and Texas, developed moving into the Mississippi River valley and into the central Appalachians.

This placed Ohio in a favorable position for widespread heavy snows.
