First snowflakes of season could fall this weekend

CHARLESTON — Though it’s been unseasonably warm with temperatures in the 70s this week, things will soon change and Lawrence County could see its first snow of the year.

A cold front is set to pass through the area Saturday night and into Sunday morning, lowering temperatures enough to bring a light snow covering to lowlands of the area on Sunday, Jonathan Wolfe, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Charleston, West Virginia, said.

Wolfe said a half inch of accumulation is possible, along with the breezy winds brought on by the front.

He pointed out that the first snow of the season is running a little late this year.

We usually see it a before now,” he said. “It’s almost Thanksgiving.”
