Some snow and cold temperatures this afternoon

FAYETTE CO., WV (WOAY) – Highs today will only be in the lower-30s with snow showers throughout the entire day and into the overnight hours.

We have a winter weather advisory for southeast Fayette, southeast Nicholas, Mercer and Summers Counties.

We have a wind chill advisory for southeast Fayette, southeast Nicholas, Tazewell, eastern Greenbrier, and Monroe Counties. We could have wind gusts up to 30-40 mph. This would cause temperatures to feel like they are in the 20s and then the teens overnight.

Those in the higher elevations in western Greenbrier County and eastern Nicholas County could see up to 6″ of snow today and into tomorrow morning.

The heaviest snow showers will be throughout the afternoon.

Even though our snow amounts aren’t that big of a deal, traveling as well as power outages are. You’ll want to drive slow anywhere you go today because with those strong wind gusts, there could be blowing snow. This means that the gusty wind will lift the snow from the surface and blow it upwards and it will reduce visibility very quickly! Go slooooowww!!

Tomorrow, highs will only make it into the teens, but the wind chill makes it feel like it is in the single digits. We continue with the chance of snow into our weekend, where temperatures will warm up enough to turn any snow into rain for Sunday and Monday.
