CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – More snow is on the way in the Tri-State, with slick roads and school delays a good bet!
A cold front will move toward the region Wednesday, providing rain showers by the early morning into the afternoon. It’s all rain until the evening hours, with cold air working in behind the front. There will be plenty enough moisture behind the front to support a few hours of heavy snow across the Tri-State. This will create slick road conditions once again in our area as well as a threat for more power outages. Watch how the rain and snow progress on Predictor below:
