BUCKHANNON — Wednesday’s winter wonderland-like snowfall late that afternoon and into the evening blanketed Buckhannon and Upshur County.
But unfortunately — or fortunately, depending on how big of a fan you are of the white stuff — snow will give way to a wintry mix over the weekend.
According to the National Weather Service out of Charleston, there’s a 40 percent chance of snow showers overnight Thursday, which will like transform into a wintry mix by Friday afternoon.
Calm, cloudy skies will prevail later Friday and most of Saturday, although there is a small chance of snow overnight around 3 a.m.
The NWS predicts Sunday will be a mashup of rain and snow until 10 a.m., rain from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and then cloudy skies with a high of 43.
The sun will finally peak out Monday, Dec. 21 — the shortest day of the year — and temperatures will hover in the mid-40s.
