Relief from wintery weather is on the horizon

by Jennifer Biller

STAFF WRITER

For those tired of the winter weather of the past few days, be patient a little longer.

This weekend the snow flurries will subside and temperatures are expected to climb into the 40s, reaching the 50s on Monday, according to meteorologist Dan Bartholf of the National Weather Service in Charleston.

A snowstorm that began on Sunday dumped snow throughout North Central West Virginia, with areas in Randolph County reporting 17 inches total as of Tuesday morning, said meteorologist Nicole Belk.

Harrison County had between 2-4 inches on Tuesday; Rock Cave in Upshur County received about six inches; and Belington in Barbour County reported four inches, Belk said.

The snow has kept road crews busy since Sunday and forced school closings on Tuesday due to the ice-covered roads.

Harrison County still has plenty of salt and cinders to combat future snowstorms should it be necessary, said Mike Scott, county superintendent for the Division of Highways.

Wednesday and Thursday may bring a few snow showers, but little or no accumulation will result, Bartholf said. Low temperatures in the 20s are expected Wednesday and Thursday nights.

While the snow may be over for a while, rain is on the horizon.

"We've got a couple systems coming through, but we're not looking at anything big for the rest of the week," Bartholf said. "On Saturday we'll see sunshine and temperatures into the 40s, and on Sunday it looks like some rain."
