Moisture associated with that stationary front lingering over our eastern mountains will lift north overnight/Tuesday. This will keep the chance for a mixed bag of wintry precip tonight into Tuesday morning. Northern edge of precip could reach as far north as Rt 50 in the western counties overnight. While the entire eastern panhandle of WV will stay saturated throughout the morning on Tuesday. We'll break the precip down like this: light drizzle this evening will change to sleet in north/central WV with isolated pockets of freezing rain into Tuesday. Could also see a dusting of very wet snow across our northern mountain counties early Tuesday. Lows will fall into the upper 20s to the north tonight. While further south, lows will stay in the mid/upper 30s. So even though accumulations will be very light, the mixed precip could result in some icy roads Tuesday morning. Be careful as you head out the door in the AM! We'll catch a few breaks in the clouds during the day on Tuesday, especially across our northern counties. Meanwhile, mixed precip will change BACK to rain in the south and east. Highs reach the upper 30s/low 40s. Light rain showers will creep back north again Tuesday evening. Then more mixed precip will be briefly possible Tuesday night as temps drop below freezing across our northern counties. Things dry out quickly Wednesday morning from north to south. Forecast will stay dry & mainly sunny with highs near 40° to round out the rest of this week. More wet weather arrives late Sunday.
