Episode Narrative A low pressure system moving out of the central plains weakened as it pushed east across the forecast area. After snow began to fall across the region, warm air at low levels moved in above sub-freezing temperatures at the surface. Light to moderate snow showers caused minor accumulations during the late morning hours of January 21 before snow mixed with sleet and freezing rain and then changed over to freezing drizzle during the early morning hours of January 22. SKYWARN Spotters and Cooperative Observers reported a mixture of snow, sleet, and freezing rain and drizzle, with total accumulations ranging from 1 to 4 inches across the region. Numerous traffic accidents were blamed on the slick roadways across Berkley, Jefferson and Mineral Counties during the afternoon and evening of January 21. Route 46 in Keyser, WV, was blocked for over an hour as crews worked to clear an accident. Schools were also delayed or cancelled in Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan Counties on January 22.
Event Narrative A trained spotter in Lost River, WV, reported 1.5 inches of snow.
