Winter Storm Update

1209

Good Tuesday morning! Overnight some local areas mixed with rain through the early hours of our morning. This allowed those locations to see less snow accumulation this morning, especially in our lower lying areas. Areas that have seen accumulation, including Beckley, are seeing accumulations on power lines and trees. Western Greenbrier county and eastern Nicholas county will still see the biggest impact on travel conditions and see the greater amounts of accumulating snow. We will transition to an upslope mountain snow event as winds shift to a northwesterly flow. This will allow wrap around moisture from the storm as well as moisture off of the great lakes to make its way to the mountains. The upslope snow will allow us to continue to see accumulation snow and hazardous travel conditions throughout the day today. Snow showers will last through your Wednesday morning in our higher elevations. Winds will gust up to 40 mph today and pick up this afternoon and evening. Wind chill values will be in the single digits tonight, and negative values will be see Wednesday morning. Please bring in any pets and have blankets handy, especially with the current risk of power outages.
