Slick roads and low visibility will impact highway travel over a wide section of West Virginia tonight with the mountains expected to see the heaviest snow.
Earlier in the day, hundreds of cars backed up on US 19, a key north south route. A snow squall hit, melted and immediately refroze in Braxton County and more snow covered the roadway in higher sections in Nicholas County.
Some cars couldn't make the hill until snowplows fought their way through traffic. Weather related accidents were reported on all interstates in central and southern West Virginia. 71 accidents have been reported in Kanawha County since noon.
