A winter weather advisory was in effect for Fayette, Greenbrier, Monroe, Summers and Raleigh counties Sunday night through 1 a.m. this morning, with an additional 3 inches of snow expected.
Joe Merchant, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Charleston, said the Beckley area had a total of 6 inches as of 2 p.m. Sunday, so totals could climb even higher with the anticipated snowfall overnight.
The region should see a break from the winter weather during the day today, Merchant said, with temperatures in the mid-30s.
Tonight into Tuesday morning will bring another burst of snow, but Merchant said only the higher elevations are expected to see accumulation.
For Tuesday, temperatures are expected to warm and rain is a possibility.
Merchant said flooding is not currently a concern, but meteorologists will continue to monitor the forecast.
