Parts of state to see snow

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — This week will bring snow to parts of West Virginia.

Meteorologists with the National Weather Service said a strong cold front had the potential to bring rain and accumulating snow to areas from southern West Virginia all the way up into the north central and eastern mountain counties starting late Monday night.

Carrie Bly, the spokesperson for the state Department of Transportation, said road clearing crews are ready.  She said dry runs, across the Mountain State, to prepare for the winter weather happened weeks ago.

“We test out our salt trucks.  We put the salt in the trucks.  We test the spreaders to make sure we’re not wasting it and it’s going out properly.  We’ve got all the plows on,” said Bly.

Bly said slick roads require different driving techniques.  “It sounds silly to have to remind people to drive slow, but we’re not invincible and, if our trucks are out on the road, you need to slow down,” she said.

The snow was expected to continue into Tuesday in some areas and, possibly, keep going into Wednesday and Thursday, as well, in the highest elevations.
