Posted: Updated:

TUESDAY MORNING: Winter Storm Warnings continue until 8 p.m. Tuesday for Pike County Kentucky where as much as a total of 3 to 4 inches of snow could accumulate through that time frame.  Winter Weather Advisories continue for Elliott, Morgan, Johnson, Martin and Floyd counties until noon for anywhere from 1 to 4 inches of new snow.  

Winter Storm Warnings for Pocahontas and Webster counties through 2 p.m. Tuesday.  The grand totals of snow from Sunday through Wednesday morning will reach 8 to 16 inches in the highest elevations!

Winter Weather Advisories continue for Fayette, Nicholas and Raleigh counties until 2 p.m. Tuesday for anywhere from 1 to 4 inches of new snow.

Temperatures are expected to drop below the freezing mark tonight which means any wet areas could freeze over, especially on bridges and overpasses.  

Several schools in the high terrain counties of West Virginia have already delayed school for today.  Stay tuned to 13 News and wowktv.com for the latest on school delays or closings.

An early-spring storm will bring some accumulating snow to residents of West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky Monday and Tuesday.

An area of low pressure, with ample moisture coming in from the west is combining with the cold air that has been so persistent across the region for the past several days.  Temperatures will fall during the day on Monday, changing any rain across the area to snow.  Because temperatures will be very close to the freezing mark, the snowflakes that we do see will be heavy and wet.

Accumulations on grassy surfaces around 1-2" are likely across the I-64 corridor between Charleston and Huntington.  Higher amounts of snow, around 2-4", will be measured in Southeast Ohio and in higher elevations north and east of Charleston.

StormTracker 13 Chief Meteorologist Spencer Adkins says, "Conditions could be very slick anywhere locally Monday morning. Our viewers are encouraged to wake up a few minutes early so they can handle any slick roads and take their time getting to work or school safely."

By midday on Monday, temperatures will be too warm for any snow to stick to the ground across the lowlands, but scattered rain and snow showers will still be possible throughout the day.  Most of the remaining snow showers on Monday will be restricted to the mountains and higher elevations in the eastern parts of West Virginia.
