Snow Timeline For Upcoming Systems

WOAY-TV (Oak Hill, WV): A low pressure in the Midwest will bring a cold front through overnight, allowing light rain to change to snow.

Chad’s latest forecast and a look at southern West Virginia’s 2023 weather extremes:

TIMELINE OF THE NEW YEAR’s DAY SNOW: Rain begins between 10 PM and Midnight (New Year’s Eve).

Rain changes to all snow by 1 AM with heavier bursts expected. Snow will stick on sidewalks, driveways and secondary roads before daybreak. Main roads will likely stay wet; the shoulders of secondary roads and likely sidewalks will become slippery around 3-6 AM Monday, even with minimal accumulation.

Most of the 0.5″ snow accumulation (2-3″ snow accumulation in western Greenbrier and Pocahontas) will occur through 11 PM Monday.

Flurries expected Monday night into Tuesday morning will produce a dusting on car windshields, etc. Any glossy areas on sidewalks and driveways will likely be icy patches.

OVERNIGHT WEDNESDAY: Similar type of system will bring another burst of 0.5″ of snow and create slippery sidewalks, driveways, etc.

WEEKEND STORM: Rain/snow mix on Saturday will transition to rain and then burst of snow on its backside overnight Saturday. Snow amounts will reach 1″ across much of the region, with as much as 3-5″ in western Pocahontas.
