Izzy brings ice and snow to Morgantown

MORGANTOWN – It wasn’t as bad as expected but Winter Storm Izzy brought a mix of freezing rain, ice and snow overnight that has coated roadways to start the week. Overnight snow totals are right around an inch of accumulation in the lowlands with higher totals in the mountains.

However, that snow came down on a layer of ice that fell before the snow started Sunday evening.

Snow is coming down across North Central West Virginia and making for treacherous travel tonight and conditions are not expected to improve during the evening and overnight hours.

More snow is forecasted for today with the bulk of the snowfall expected between 11 am and 3 pm with an additional 1 to 3 inches of accumulation possible in the lowlands.

A Winter Storm Warning is posted through 1 p.m. Monday.

So far, just a few hundred power outages have been reported by Mon Power, the majority of those in Preston County, specifically in the Albright and Bruceton Mills areas. Crews expect to have service restored early this morning.
