BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - A couple of inches of snow have already fallen across the area this morning, and more is expected to come down during the day. However, we will see some rain in the afternoon, which could melt some of that snow on contact, and then create an icy surface after it refreezes. We have some slick spots on the roads already, so drive with extra caution until all of that snow is gone!

Monongalia and Marion Counties are under a Winter Weather Advisory, with 2-4 more inches of snow possible as well as icing.

Currently, Braxton, Lewis, Harrison, Taylor, Upshur, Barbour, Raleigh, Fayette, Nicholas, Webster, Randolph, Tyler, Lincoln, Putnam, Kanawha, Roane, Wirt, Calhoun, Ritchie, Doddridge, Mingo, Logan, Boone, Clay, Gilmer, and Pocahontas counties are under a Winter Storm Warning from 7 PM today (2/17) to 10 AM Friday (2/19). These counties could see anywhere from 3 to 6 inches of snow from this event.

Finally, ridges in Webster and Pocahontas as well as Raleigh Fayette, and Nicholas counties may see 6-8 inches of snow. All of these totals run from 7 PM today (2/17) to 10 AM Friday (2/19). Mixing and sleet are both possible through the afternoon today in all of these locations, so be safe on the roads!
