Thousands of West Virginians awoke to a wintry mess that fell across much of the state Sunday night and Monday morning.
Schools were closed in around two dozen counties, and a handful of others opened hours later than usual.
But the latest forecast calls for a somewhat welcome break, at least for those who don't actually enjoy slick roads and bitter cold temperatures.
Temperatures are likely to be more normal and only a few scattered snowshowers are expected across North Central West Virginia during the next few days, according to weather forecasts.
A weaker cold front is expected to hover over the area today, bringing some scattered snow showers, said Alan Rezek, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Charleston.
Temperatures are expected to rise near the mid-30s or higher during the next few days.
Regardless of whether or not that break actually arrives, state and local road crews don't plan to slow up.
The West Virginia Division of Highways in Harrison County will continue to clear roadways during two 12-hour shifts.
"The basic problem we've had is that we get the roads cleaned up reasonably well and another snowfall comes in," said Mike Scott, superintendent of the state DOH in Harrison County.
Meanwhile, officials at Allegheny Power say they're just glad that the latest round of storms left few without power. Freezing rain and ice can weigh down tree limbs, possibly causing them to break and fall onto power lines.
But that particular problem wasn't much of an issue Monday.
"I guess the major concern was the ice and the sleet, but we really didn't get really as much as some forecasted and I thought that was very helpful," said Guy Fletcher, spokesman for Allegheny Power.
