The will be different than some totals in backyards and such, but we know this is very close to what was seen across the region.

RADAR ESTIMATE of snow totals. Some will be different than what you measured but this is a close example of what we saw across the region.

As the day goes on, the wind chill will drop to the teens across the area. Clouds will continue to plague the region with light snow showers in the mountains and flurries in other locations.

Snow totals will be in the 1 to 5 inch range in many locations. There will be higher totals in the mountains.

Kenna: 5.0″
Spencer: 4.5″
Summersville: 3.5″
Downtown Huntington: 1.3″
Hilltops of Huntington: 2.0″
Eleanor: 4.2″

Charleston – South Ridge: 2.8″
Patriot: 3.0″

Low temperatures Wednesday night.

The big concern Tuesday night is black ice, as we’ll see temperatures dropping to the low 20s in most locations. Combine those cold temperatures with very wet roadways from a day of rain followed by a day of snow – black ice will likely be prevalent.
