Scaled Back Winter Storm

WINTER STORM UPDATE (WSAZ) -- Two storms have fought each other to a stalemate overnight. The lack of dominance by either means snow accumulations will be scaled back across the region Sunday and Sunday night.

The coastal storm is already past us and has robbed the western system of a booster shot of moisture. So that western system will go it alone today. Look for a mix of rain, sleet and snow in the Coalfields Sunday morning to make it to I-64 as wet snow by lunch time.

With air and ground temperatures mainly above freezing, roads and sidewalks will repel falling snow while trees, grass and cars will accept the snow in slushy form.

Winter Storm Warnings for heavy wet snow, accumulating twice or even three times as much in the tall hills versus the river valleys, are in effect for the entire Coalfield region of Kentucky and West Virginia. Valley towns will measure 2 or 3 inches on grass while tall peaks will get as much as 6 inches.

The I-64 zone is under a weaker Winter Weather Advisory for melting snow and some slush build-up later on.
