Slow, slippery, and slushy start to the work week. Will the colder temperatures stick around?

BRIDGEPORT, W. Va. (WDTV) - A cold front swept the region late last night bringing much colder temperatures and some periods of sleet and snow as well. Snow showers started during the predawn hours and have continued thus far. With temperatures hovering right around freezing across NCWV, snow and sleet will remain through the morning hours.

As the aforementioned cold front slides off the coast, it will be taking clouds cover and precipitation with it. By 10 AM, snow showers should be coming to an end. Very minimal accumulations are expected with these snow showers, a coating on the grass or cars and up to about an inch is possible in a few spots. With temperatures remaining below or just at freezing through the morning hours, slick spots on the roads will be an issue. No advisories, watches, or warnings exist at this time, but be extra cautious on the roads and add on extra time to your morning commute. Be especially cautious on bridges, overpasses, and around curves.

Temperatures for today will be much cooler than the past few days, but more warmth is on the way. This afternoon, we will likely only climb into the upper 30's and lower 40's. Tomorrow, temperatures warm into the upper 40's and by Wednesday we are soaring into the 50's!
