The word on everyone's mind along most of the eastern seaboard is SNOW and the question is...how much will we see?
Places like Pikeville, Kentucky have been seeing snowfall since 3PM this afternoon and by around 8PM the snow pushed into Charleston. The extent of the snowfall is looking to push slightly further northwest overnight; however, the heaviest of snow will stay confined to the south and east in our region.
Here is the latest model run of the NAM (which is looking right on track)...
This outlook is bringing the snow line closer to the Ohio River by 1 AM, where a few flurries should start to appear. Of course, the heaviest snowfall is where the yellow shading is located, over far southern and eastern West Virginia.
By 7 AM, the heavier snowfall will push eastward (indicated by the green and yellow shading) but the NAM shows some lingering light snowfall over our region still. Notice how the blue extends as northwest as Huntington. Keep this is mind with your morning commute, as light snow will be likely region wide.
By the afternoon, light snow will be possible in our eastern extents (just east of Charleston) but the rest of us will start to clear out. In fact, by the mid-afternoon, conditions should become partly cloudy!
Considering this most recent model outlook, this is the snowfall forecast state to state...
Here is a look at the current conditions…
Have a good evening!
