CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a winter weather advisory for much of West Virginia today. The advisory for higher elevations is a winter storm warning.
Forecasters say we’ll see temperatures dropping all day today. We’ll see rain for western parts of the state this morning which will move eastward.
Toward early afternoon the forecast calls for the rain to change over to snow. The snow will deliver roughly 2-4 inches of snow for the western lowlands and southern West Virginia counties and 3-6 inches across the higher elevations of the state. The storm is expected to end about 7 a.m. Friday.
The accumulation totals could vary depending on how quickly temperatures drop and whether the system stalls over the state as it moves east.
