Travelers Road Log

Snow has been a factor in Northern WV today. TC updates the Wednesday travel forecast.

Travel Update

Steady snow fell in Central and Northern WV and Northern Maryland on Tuesday afternoon with the ground whitened from Sutton north to Morgantown on I-79 and from Parkersburg east to Clarksburg on US Route 50.

Temperatures have been just above freezing there so roads were wet this afternoon while the hillsides have picked up 1”-3” of wet snow.

Meanwhile, the high mountains are feasting on this pattern with Canaan Valley reporting another 10” bringing the monthly total for November to close to 50”. At this pace, Canaan has a shot at a 200” winter!

This high mountain stretch includes Wisp ski resort in Garrett County MD and Preston County WV along I-68 east of Morgantown. Plows have been out along I-68 and will be working into Wednesday morning.

The good news is that the snow will wind down by midday on Wednesday and the roads will be more easily traveled by noon.

So whereas I had instructed my friends coming in from York Pa to take the southern route along I-81 then the I-64 route thru the Greenbrier Valley into Huntington on Tuesday to avoid the snow, I believe anyone traveling I-68 on Wednesday AFTER THE NOON HOUR will be fine.

Air travel too looks fine on Wednesday as the USA weather pattern settles down for the biggest travel day of the year. Check out this FAA website for the latest as there will surely be non-weather related delays due to the sheer volume of air traffic.
