A winter storm is expected to drop at least 4 to 7 inches of snow and other mixed precipitation on the region over the course of Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

The National Weather Service in Charleston reported rain and snow showers were likely Sunday night before 3 a.m. with an estimated nighttime snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible. High: 44. Wind: N 5-10 miles per hour.

TUESDAY: Cloudy and with a 70% chance for showers.

We'll be watching closely the next front that moves in Friday night and Saturday.

"Monday we get a chance of precipitation coming in the late afternoon", meteorologist Russell Danielsen said. The snowfall may end from west to east tonight, around midnight.

Snow is likely after 8 p.m. Strong northwest winds kick in this afternoon, gusting at times to 30 miles per hour, so blowing and drifting snow may be an issue in open areas.

The weather service is forecasting snow starting overnight Tuesday into Wednesday.

WINTER WEATHER LIKELY BEGINNING THIS AFTERNOON.While forecast confidence remains low, the potential for hazardous ice accumulation has increased across the advisory area.

After a slight chance of precipitation on Friday – the result of a system moving well north of New Jersey – another storm system is expected to organize over the southern Plains on Saturday and move northeastward.

Thursday night - A chance of snow.

Because of that storm system, 185 accidents were reported Monday just in Iowa, the eastern part of which got 10 inches of snow. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 24. Winds could gust as high as 20 miles per hour. Cloudy, then gradually becoming partly cloudy, with a low around 23. High pressure and dry weather are forecast for Thursday as sunshine returns.
