Melting some snow today. Currently 60° in Charleston and Huntington! Morgantown just hit 53° while Martinsburg and much of the eastern pnahandle manages to stay about ten degrees cooler. Already starting to get returns on the radar near Parkersburg as this low pressure system pushes eastward. Rain will eventually overtake the area after dark. Freezing rain is likely in the eastern counties as lows flirting with freezing. Elsewhere, lows will stay in the upper 30s/low 40s and precip will stay in the form of rain. Showers depart by mid morning.

The bigger story will be the winds in the next 24 hours. With the saturated ground and winds gusting to 45 MPH at times, could see a fallen tree or two. Cooler air IS on tap for Monday night/Tuesday. Wrap around moisture will change to snow in the north and eastern mtns. Look for just a dusting there. Otherwise dry and mild with highs in the mid 40s Tuesday. Mixed precip again Wednesday. Cool air sticks around with more snow flurries to round out the weekend.
