HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - After a widespread 4″- 8″ of dense snowfall across the Tri-State, the large Noreaster is pulling away. Winds are blustery, keeping temperatures feeling like the teens and keeping those “Lake Effect” snow showers coming in from the north and west. We’ll see some additional coatings of snow with these, but they won’t have the same waterlogged heaviness as the snow we’ve already gotten. The eastern mountain counties will be looking at an extra 1″- 3″ of snow from this, as those extra flakes are wrung out of the sky courtesy of that extra elevation. This is a great snow for snowballs and snowmen, but whatever you don’t clear off the walkways and driveways will ice over tonight as temperatures drop to the lower 20s.

Clouds will start Tuesday, along with some more leftover icy conditions that can cause school impacts and road delays. By the afternoon not only are we trying to work back in some sunshine, we’ll end up well into the 30s, finally instigating some melting. It won’t get all that cold Tuesday night either, with initial cooling to the lower 30s rising back toward the 40s Wednesday morning, bringing rain showers into the region. Expect some gloomy fog as well, considering most of the snow still will not have melted away by then. As the front bringing these showers passes through, temperatures will again get cold enough for some snowflakes-- but it is currently not looking to be anything like what we’ve just gone through.

Later in the week, temperatures will still hang out near or below the freezing-mark. Several smaller systems will be scooting through, each bringing a shot at snowfall. Winter clearly appears to be in mid-season form!
