BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - More snow showers are expected for tonight. This comes as the back end of the low-pressure system, which brought snow into WV yesterday, pushes eastward. Many of these snow showers might affect visibility, and they’ll add to the amount of snow that’s already fallen in WV for the past several hours. The mountains will likely see over 3 inches of snow in multiple locations, with some areas seeing more than that. Because of this, the mountain counties, stretching from Preston County down into Webster and Pocahontas counties, will remain under a Winter Weather Advisory until 7 AM tomorrow morning. This means that roads might be slick due to a combination of the snow and the cold temperatures, which might cause ice to form, so if you’re traveling tonight, take it slow on those roads and give yourself extra time. While not much snow will fall in the lowlands, at less than an inch in most locations, it still warrants caution tonight when driving, especially as temperatures dip below freezing. After tomorrow morning, we get a break from the snow for Sunday afternoon, before more snow falls Sunday night into Monday. More snow showers come in for Monday, mostly in the mountains. Another batch of snow showers comes in on Tuesday afternoon, before we dry out Wednesday. The last batch of weather for next week comes on Thursday, with another low-pressure system bringing rain and snow showers to WV. Next weekend, we see colder, but drier, conditions.

Tonight: We’ll see more on-again, off-again snow showers, mostly concentrated in the mountains, but some will still fall in the lowlands too. Some roads might be slick during this time, so be careful traveling. Low: 28.

Tomorrow: We’ll see snow showers in the morning. Then we get a break from the snow in the early-afternoon, before more snow comes in the early-evening hours. High: 36.

Monday: More snow showers for the day, along with mostly cloudy skies. Most snow will be concentrated in the mountains, but some accumulation in the lowlands is possible. High: 33.

Tuesday: We’ll get a break from the snow in the morning and early-afternoon, before more precipitation comes in the afternoon and evening hours. High: 36.
