Fayetteville , West Virginia
A developing storm system is tracking farther south than initially indicated. As a result, snow accumulations will generally be confined to areas south of Charleston and Huntington this afternoon and evening.
A little rain and snow mix will likely develop in the Kanawha Valley later today and may dust the grassy surfaces but roads should remain wet. Farther south wet snow will fall at a fairly heavy clip for a few hours, resulting in several inches of wet snow. Logan, Beckley, Fayetteville and Williamson are likely in line for the heaviest accumulations in our area. Even higher amounts will fall toward Lewisburg and down around Bluefield.
Webcams show I-77 is becoming slushy down in western Virginia as of Noon as snow is falling there. Parts of Corridor G and the West Virginia Turnpike will also become slushy later today as the snow picks up in intensity.
Snow is expected to taper off this evening. Wet spots on untreated roads could refreeze overnight as temperatures fall into the 20s.
