Episode Narrative Light precipitation spread east across the Mid Atlantic ahead of a low pressure system. Temperatures at the onset of precipitation were cold enough to produce snow. As precipitation spread east towards the Blue Ridge, temperatures aloft increased to above freezing while temperatures at the surface remained below freezing. This caused portions of the eastern pan handle of West Virginia to see a change over from snow to freezing rain. Road conditions began to rapidly deteriorate during the afternoon when rain began to freezing onto the roadways.

Several inches of snow was reported across the eastern pan handle of West Virginia. Freezing rain and sleet was also reported at times mixed with the snow.
Event Narrative Trained spotters and cooperative observers measured 2 to 3 inches of snow and a trace of ice.
