Less than an inch of snow expected in Upshur County overnight into Monday morning

Although a winter weather advisory has been issued for the eastern mountains of West Virginia, Upshur County should miss most of the snowfall according to the latest information from the National Weather Service office in Charleston.

Buckhannon is expected to see less than an inch of snow as Sunday’s rain showers transition to flakes after midnight. Flooding remains a potential issue while the lingering precipitation moves through the area.

“Creek or river rises are possible today. Any ongoing flooding may continue,” according to the NWS. “Rain transitions to snow tonight into Monday morning. This combined with any ponding water freezing overnight could cause slick spots on roadways. Minor accumulations are possible in the lowlands. The bulk of the snow will fall through Monday morning.”

Higher elevations, such as the Snowshoe area, could receive 4-6 inches of snow overnight into Monday.

In Upshur County, temperatures will be falling all day Sunday, reaching 41 degrees by 5 p.m., the NWS forecasts. The low overnight is just 24 degrees, and it will remain chilly Monday, with a high of 32, before rebounding into the 40s Tuesday and Wednesday.

As you resume your morning commutes after the holidays, please stay safe on the roads!
