CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Social media on Friday afternoon lit up with wintry scenes to the south and West Virginia is next with some snow scheduled to cover parts of the state Saturday.
Places like Charlotte, North Carolina saw several inches of snow Friday along with other southeastern communities. However, the snowfall expected in West Virginia this weekend will come from an entirely different system, according to Meteorologist John Sikora at the National Weather Service in Charleston.
“A cold from will pass through Saturday afternoon,” Sikora said. “Everybody can look for an inch or so in the low country, but the mountains has a better chance with two to four inches in the up-slope areas as the front pushes through.”
The forecast would be the first snow of the season in West Virginia and comes at the end of nearly a month of unseasonably warm and dry weather.
“It’s going to stay with us,” said Sikora. “We’ll have a little bit of a break on Sunday, maybe a little warm up on Sunday, but we have another system coming in on Tuesday that might give us some pretty good snows.”
