More snow is expected for West Virginia Monday, but the Charleston and Huntington area is expected to get a break from any major accumulation.
Temperatures above freezing above are forecast for areas around and south of Interstate 64 by this afternoon, Eyewitness News Meteorologist Doug Harlow said. Precipitation will arrive late Monday and into the night, with mainly snow north of I-64 and in the mountains, while the Kanawha Valley, Huntington and the coalfields will see mainly rain.
Harlow said the rain could switch to wet snow Monday night, but Charleston and Huntington will only end up with getting a coating. Areas north and east of the Charleston-Huntington corridor could see up to 1 inch of snow. Athens and Parkersburg could receive about 2-3 inches, and 3-6 inches could be possible in the mountains along Interstate 79 and U.S. 19.
Snow showers should taper down Tuesday morning, and a chilly but quiet afternoon is expected Tuesday with highs about 38 degrees, Harlow said.
Temperatures are expected to rise later in the week, with of high of 42 degrees possible Wednesday, and a 55-degree high forecast for Thursday.
