CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — More precipitation is headed toward West Virginia on the heels of a storm that dumped heavy snow in parts of the state.
A flood watch is in effect for at least 38 counties. The National Weather Service says an approaching storm is capable of producing an inch or more of rain on already saturated ground Tuesday night through Wednesday afternoon.
And a storm watch for freezing rain has been issued in the Eastern Panhandle and surrounding counties. The weather service says accumulations of a quarter-inch or more of ice is possible.
On Monday, a 10-inch snowfall in Morgantown prompted West Virginia University to cancel classes. Deckers Creek in nearby Sabraton rose a foot above flood stage.
High water also closed some roads in Greenbrier, Pendleton and Raleigh counties.
