Snow set to fly again Sunday in the West Virginia high terrain


(WOWK) – It may not be time to wax the skis just yet but as the calendar flips from October to November, flakes are already flying in the high mountains of West Virginia.

On Friday snowshoe ski resort saw the first visible snow of the season. No accumulation was reported during the day but conditions deteriorated at night with wind driven snow squalls. The air is clearly cold enough at 4,800 feet to produce snow.

On Sunday a very sharp cold front is expected to move through, and briefly rain across the lower areas of West Virginia but snow should fall once again in the high terrain, generally above 3,500 feet.

The ground temperature should be rather warm, except in the mountains, so most of the snow should melt but there could be a dusting to a light coating between the grass and back road areas Sunday night into Monday morning in places like Webster, Pocahontas and Randolph counties.

Overnight lows Sunday will drop into the 20s in many areas and the high temperature will only return to the 40s on Monday so November definitely brings a taste of the winter chill back to the area.
