Snowshoe Mountain Resort, WV:
- 2-4″ of Snow On Tuesday
“Bitterly cold temperatures will arrive this week in the wake of a strong arctic cold front that will push across the region late on Monday night. Rain will occur just ahead of the front Monday night but precipitation will rapidly transition to snow from west to east across the area as arctic air comes crashing in. Temperatures may fall below zero Wednesday night for most or all of our forecast area and wind chill values will be much colder. Thus, be prepared for major cold this week and wintry travel conditions on Tuesday. Stay tuned to the latest forecast information in the coming days as we monitor this very carefully.”

Snowfall totals are forecasted to be higher in the mountains.
