HUNTINGTON, W. . Va. (WSAZ) – Late on Monday evening, light snow fell over the region. The still warm ground and boundary air temperatures melted most of the snow on contact.
But back west, the temperatures from Columbus to Cincinnati to Lexington had dropped below freezing – a sure sign that our time in the freezing air would come. In a preemptive strike against Mother Nature, ODOT was out in Scioto County treating roads when grasses took on a blanket of snow.
While evening shopping and drives through lighted Christmas scenes like the winter wonderland in Ashland were popular attractions given the falling snow, the expected drop in temperature overnight should soon promote a blanket of snow in parts of the region. .
While many children are now learning virtually at home on the World Wide Web, the district superintendents, who still offer in-house instruction, oversee the conditions in case there is a need to work on a reduced schedule.
The most likely course of events suggested overnight snowfall of half an inch to an inch in valley towns with higher hills reaching an inch or two.
During Tuesday, solar energy will invisibly penetrate the cloud deck, so roads that start smoothly become damp between passing thunderstorms or a heavier thunderstorm.
In the highlands, Counties Nicholas, Fayette, Raleigh, and Randolph should see inches of snow before they rejuvenate. Likewise, a fine snowfall would cover the region south of Charleston towards Tamarack, Beckley, Bluefield and east to Lewisburg.
The rest of the work and school week will be rather tame with frosty cold nights but some afternoon sun.
