Huntington (WSAZ) -- Salt trucks and snow plows were back out on roads Saturday morning as a steady snow dropped 2 to 4 inches on the region.

Roads were slick and will remain wet and slushy into the evening as the bulk of the snow shifts east and the temperature gets close to freezing. Wind gusts to 30 and 40 mph will also blow the snow around. A new snow squall is possible Saturday night as an arctic cold front moves through the area. This would cause a new light snow accumulation and slick travel.

The temperatures will drop overnight through the teens and single digits. This will cause any slush or water to refreeze. The wind chill will be below zero at times. Watch for slick conditions Sunday morning too.

A break in the bitter cold Sunday afternoon because the high temperature will get a little above freezing. We’ve not been above freezing since late Monday night. It won’t last long though. Another arctic blast on Monday with snow showers and a light snow accumulation is expected. Highs will be in the teens and lows 0 to -5 next Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
