Currently a breezy 20° in Morgantown with a few winks of sunshine. But that northwest wind gusting to above 20 MPH at times will keep blowing snow going in the eastern mountains. Another cold night in store tonight with lows in the teens & single digits in the highlands. Scattered upslope snow flurries continue in the eastern mountains into Monday AM followed by a brief period of freezing rain or sleet. Then the biting cold air will get shut off as winds turn southwesterly again on Monday morning. We'll be left with a pretty nice day with highs in the upper 40s under mainly sunny skies!

Rain returns ahead of the next cold front after midnight Monday night, continuing into Tuesday. Could see pockets of mixed precip in the eastern mountains Tuesday morning as temperatures flirt with freezing. Rain/snow mix will change to all snow as temperatures take another tumble Tuesday afternoon and evening. Lows will be in the low to mid 20s. Scattered snow flurries will linger into Wednesday in the northern counties and we'll measure another 2-4 inches by Wednesday evening in places like Preston, Tucker and Randolph counties. 

Cool air will stick around Thursday with highs struggling to reach 40°. Occasional mountain snow flurries are also expected into Thursday morning. Friday looks messy as the next low pressure system crosses our area with rain, mountain snow and sleet. Dry Saturday with highs in the 40s.
