Secondary band of snow expected to cause additional troubles

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, WV -

TUESDAY MORNING UPDATE

Snow showers have briefly come to an end for much of our West Virginia and Eastern Kentucky counties but a secondary band of snow is pushing into Southeast Ohio and will cross the Ohio River shortly.

Additional light accumulations are possible.  Most areas around the Tri-State have picked up 1 to 4 inches.  Southeast Ohio counties that have not seen any accumulations will pick up a coating to an inch as that secondary band of snow moves into the area.

Ice is still a big concern on secondary and rural roads.  Main roads and interstates appear to be fine as of this morning, but temperatures are below freezing so standing water may still freeze on untreated roads and any snow that does melt may freeze throughout the day.

Use caution while driving during the morning hours.  Temperatures tonight will fall into the teens, so we will have a refreeze of any melted snow leading to black ice problems on the roads Wednesday morning.

MONDAY EVENING UPDATE:

Our next round of snowy weather will arrive into the Tri-State during the pre-dawn hours on Tuesday. Snow will likely cause slick roads and travel troubles during the Tuesday morning commute.

Cold temperatures will support the possibility of icy conditions on untreated roads, bridges and overpasses.

Widespread snow will impact West Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio through midday Tuesday. Accumulations will range from a coating up to four inches in some locations.  

Winter Weather Advisories are in effect from 1 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday to account for the accumulating snow for the West Virginia and Kentucky counties in the 13 News viewing area.
