Winter Weather Advisory in Effect Until Thursday Morning


A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the West Virginia portion of the Ohio Valley viewing area Wednesday night.

The advisory went into effect at 7 p.m. for Hancock, Brooke, Ohio, Marshall and Wetzel Counties. 

The National Weather Service is calling for between four and six inches of snow in those areas, however, areas to the east could see more. Areas in higher elevations are also more likely to see snow totals on the higher end of the spectrum. 

StormTracker 7 Chief Meteorologist Dr. Dave Walker expects one to three of the snow for most viewers. Higher amounts expected on some of the ridge tops. Areas closer to the Ohio River will see the least amount of snow.

School delays and closings are possible with the storm system, stay up to date and watch 7News this Morning with Rachael Dierkes, Tessa DiTirro and Emily Goodman for the latest on your morning commute. 

You can also stay up-to-date on the forecast by downloading the StormTracker 7 weather app. It is free in the Apple and Android app stores.

Send your pictures of the snow to or post them to the WTRF 7News Facebook page wall to be featured in the nature picture segment of the 10 p.m. news. 

The Winter Weather Advisory expires on Thursday morning at 11 a.m.
