CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The winter that rocked the state in January continued its assault into February with a strong storm that left a mixed bag of precipitation early Monday morning.
The storm was all snow in central and north central counties with snowfall amounts ranging from a few inches in Jackson County to more than a half-foot of snow in Fairmont and Morgantown.
The Interstate 64 corridor between Huntington and Charleston started as all rain but when the changeover occurred it created slippery driving conditions. There were close to three dozen wrecks reported in the Kanawha Valley during morning rush hour.
Meteorologists said counties south of Interstate 64 picked mostly rain from the system.
The 2013-14 school year took another hit Monday with 38 county school districts shutting their doors for the day.
