Hurricane Brings Havoc to West Virginia

Posted: Updated:

Currently, Blizzard Warnings are active for Monday through early Wednesday over the eastern mountains. High winds and heavy snow will allow dangerous travel conditions to develop. Also, these power outages are possible with this combination. Flood Watches still active, along with Wind Advisories and High Wind Warnings. Stay alert for dangerous weather conditions!

Heavy rain and heavy snow pick up this evening and continue through out the night. Wind will increase during this time as well. Snow rates could average an inch or two per hour locations over 2000 feet. With the strong winds, visibility will be reduced to zero. In the lower elevations, heavy rain will mix with some snow overnight, but accumulations should be minor. The wind will also be quite strong. On Tuesday, still expecting strong winds along with the snow in the mountains. In the lowlands, a rain/snow mix will change to rain during the day. For Halloween, the amount of rain and snow will diminish as the low pressure begins to weaken and pull away. Showers become more scattered for Thursday into Friday, along with warmer temperatures. The weekend will be dry and warmer. Stay tuned to WBOY TV and wboy.com along with Facebook and Twitter for the latest weather information!

Just in time for the storm, a new iPhone app from StormTracker weather is available to the public for free. Simply click here to download the app to stay ahead of the storm.

It might not be a bad idea to secure or bring in outdoor furniture, Halloween decorations, etc.

Another point, although you may not need it this time, having a winter safety kit is a good idea. I'll post a link below of suggested items: http://www.srh.noaa.gov/oun/?n=safety-winter-safetykit
