***WINTER STORM WARNING*** The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning that is in effect from 4:00 a.m. EST on Saturday to 4:00 a.m. EST on Sunday. A low pressure system over Oklahoma will move toward West Virginia on Saturday. The low will strengthen as it moves eastward. Southerly winds on the eastern side of the low will transport warmer air toward the state. Snow will develop on Saturday morning when the warmer air rises over cooler denser air at the surface. If the air above the surface warms enough, rain could mix with the snow on Saturday afternoon. Strong northerly winds will bring colder air on Saturday night and the precipitation will become all snow. There could be a period of heavier snow. The total snowfall could be 5-8 inches. Strong northwesterly winds will transport colder air over Ohio on Sunday when the low pressure system moves northeastward away from the state. The temperature is likely to decrease during the day on Sunday.
