CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Charleston, AP) – Here is a Valentine’s Day present that most people would rather not open – more snow.

Eyewitness News Meteorologist Doug Harlow said that the next system moving through late Friday and this evening could bring some accumulating snow. When the precipitation breaks out, at least from Interstate 64 south, it will likely start as some rain. Temperatures will fall from 40 to 30 in an hour or two, turning the rain to snow. Most of the area could see 3 to 4 inches of snow Friday night from the system, but some streaky bands of heavier snow may produce as much as 5 to 6 inches in localized spots.

Harlow said roads Friday night, especially by 9 p.m. to 11 p.m., could become quite messy again for drivers. Precipitation could start about 6 p.m., at least to the west.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning until Saturday morning for at least nine counties. Those counties are Cabell, Calhoun, Jackson, Mason, Putnam, Ritchie, Roane, Wirt and Wood. The weather service says those areas can expect up to 6 inches of snow. Most of the rest of the state can expected to see lesser amounts of snow.

Temperatures during the day Friday will be quite warm before falling. Charleston could see a high of 45, and eastern Kentucky may hit 50. Near Huntington and north, however, temperatures will be chillier in the 30s.

Meanwhile, Saturday calls for clear skies but cold with highs only reaching 30. Light snow or flurries are possible Saturday night. Sunday will be dry and cloudy with a high of 40.

Next week cuts everyone a break with highs in the 50s and 60s, and hitting 70 degrees is possible Thursday.
