New Winter Weather Advisory issued. Who will see what?

By  | 

BRIDGEPORT, W. Va. (WDTV) - Another Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for parts of Pocahontas, Randolph, and Webster counties. This means that snow will primarily cause travel difficulties. These may be expanded to other parts of the mountains. This current version is in effect until 8:00am Wednesday.

Some parts of these counties already got a good bit of snow from the storm system that moved just to our south Sunday into Monday. The heaviest of snow occurred in parts of Nicholas and Webster Counties. This latest round of snow will be due to mainly 'upsloping'. This means that the air is forced up and over the mountains and producing snow in the process.

There will also be snow showers in the lowlands through Wednesday morning, but not as much as the mountains. While locations farther north like Preston, Tucker, and Garrett counties will also see snow, as of this writing they are not currently in the 'advisory'. Those under the advisory should see another 3" to 6" by early Wednesday.
