Weather

UPDATED: Snow Total Forecast Map Is Below

(WOWK) – This will be the first significant snow to hit the region this afternoon and tonight. Ohio still gets snow but the heaviest will be confined to the Ohio River Valley. Light flurries and some mountain snow showers will linger into Friday across the mountains of West Virginia.

We have increased the snow totals closer to the Tri-State near Huntington and across the Kanawha Valley. As such, more counties have been added to the Winter Storm Warning!

Winter Storm Warning noon Thursday through 10AM Friday.

After the snow moves through, we are expecting an incredibly cold day on Friday. In total, we expect the temperatures to stay below freezing 42 to 46 hours straight. Wind chills will be brutal, especially on Friday morning. The Winter Storm Severity Index is going to be in the moderate category, which means travel will be hampered and the snow could prove to severely hamper any travel.

Here’s the timing of the snow, you can see it with our maps but the bulk of the snow will fall from 2pm to 8pm on Thursday. Map gallery here:

Snow squalls will be possible during the evening commute and could bring visibility down to zero. Take your time if you have to be out Thursday evening. Travel will not be advised!

Forecast as of noon on Wednesday.

We have made changes to make a sharp increase in totals near the Ohio River. That’s because of a band of snow that will be starting early near Huntington. So, we did bring the 4-6″ snow totals further to the north and west.

Finally, the wind chills will be brutal on Friday morning!
