CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The sunny weather with temperatures in the 60’s that much of the state enjoyed Monday isn’t expected to stick around long. A weather system with rain, wintry mix and snow is expected to arrive in the state Tuesday.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch from Tuesday evening to Wednesday evening for Grant, Mineral, Pendleton, Hampshire and Hardy counties. A total snow accumulation of five inches or more is possible, meteorologists said.
A handful of other counties, including Pocahontas and Randolph, are under a Winter Weather Advisory, with the possibility of snow and ice.
Other parts of the state are expected to experience cooler conditions Tuesday with rain. Snow is possible for Wednesday.
