CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A wintry mix could put a crimp in the Thanksgiving travel plans of residents in parts of northern West Virginia.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch from Tuesday morning through Wednesday afternoon for the Northern Panhandle and for Marion, Monongalia, Preston, Tucker and Wetzel counties.
The weather service says up to 6 inches of snow is possible, and ice could accumulate in parts of the region, especially on hilltops. Light snow should start falling Monday night, and most of the snowfall should come Tuesday night.
The weather service says the system could clip areas in central and southern West Virginia, but no advisories have been issued there.
