Episode Narrative The first significant, and overdue, winter storm of the 2011-2012 winter season developed over the central Appalachian region on Sunday, February 19, 2012. Temperatures had been unseasonably warm in the days leading up to the event, resulting in warm ground conditions. It took a timely combination of colder air filtering back into the region from the north throughout the day Sunday, and then heavier bands of precipitation moving across the region late enough in the afternoon and into the evening, to get snow to begin sticking in earnest. At the conclusion, an average of five to nine inches of snow covered most of southeast West Virginia.
Event Narrative Snowfall totals across the county ranged from 5.0 inches near Peterstown to 7.2 inches near Laurel Branch.
