Parkersburg, Snowshoe pick up among highest snow totals from Izzy

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Snow totals across West Virginia from Winter Storm Izzy varied perhaps even more than normal.

Meteorologists with the National Weather Service said warm air in advance of the storm and isolated snow bands created the variation.

The weather service said the Morgantown area picked up 4 inches of snow while a section of Marion County measured 5.5 inches.

Weirton had 9 inches of snow while Wheeling, 30 miles down the Ohio River had 7.

There were 10.5 inches in Parkersburg, 8.5 in Ripley, 7.5 in Huntington and generally 6 inches in Charleston, Bluefield and Lewisburg.

Eastern mountain counties also had a range of accumulation. There was 8.8 inches in Canaan Valley in Tucker County while the Snowshoe Resort in Pocahontas County reported 14 inches of snow by late Monday afternoon.

January has already produced nearly 20 inches of snow in some areas that haven’t gotten than much in several years.
