According to Charleston-based National Weather Service meteorologist Tim Akford, our area was to receive a “quick hitter.”
A snow and rain mixture was expected to turn to snow overnight as a cold air stream lowered Monday evening’s temperatures from 39 degrees to around freezing.
The storm is expected to peter out as residents head to work today, with a few scattered snow-flakes ending around 8 a.m., said Akford.
Raleigh County can expect an additional inch to the current accumulation, with up to 3 inches falling in the higher elevations.
Counties further north, like Fayette and Nicholas, might see between 2 to 4 inches in higher elevations, he said. Likewise, Wyo-ming and Mercer counties may see only a dusting.
Today’s temperatures are likely to near 40 degrees again.
