CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A winter storm is giving many West Virginia school children an early start to the weekend.
Up to 8 inches of snow and wind gusts up to 35 mph were forecast in the central and southern mountain counties before moving out of the state Friday afternoon. The northern mountains and some lower elevations were expected to receive up to 6 inches.
Winter storm warnings were posted in 17 counties. Schools were canceled Friday in at least 40 counties.
Appalachian Power reported that nearly 5,200 customers were without power Friday, most of them in Cabell and Wayne counties.
