White, not green, St. Patrick's on tap for W.Va.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. — St. Patrick's Day could be white instead of green in West Virginia.
A combination of low pressure and cold Canadian air is expected to bring heavy snow to parts of eastern and southeastern West Virginia.
Winter storm warnings are in effect from Sunday afternoon through Monday morning for Pendleton, Greenbrier, Monroe, Summers, Hardy, Grant, Pocahontas and Randolph counties.
The National Weather Service says Pendleton County could receive up to 10 inches of snow, with up to a foot in the mountains above 2,000 feet. Eight to nine inches of snow is expected in the other counties.
Other parts of the state could receive 2 to 5 inches of snow.
