MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — The National Weather Service is looking ahead to a weekend snow event for the Eastern Panhandle.                                             

Will Astle of West Virginia Eastern Panhandle Weather was a guest on Monday’s Panhandle Live.  He explained how the system is forming:

As for snow totals, it’s too early to nail down an exact amount, but it could amount to as much as 5 to 14 inches when it’s all said and done.

Still, there will be accumulations along the I-81 corridor, according to Astle.

He talked about the timeline of the storm:

The National Weather Service in Baltimore says snow is likely Saturday  mainly after 8am. The high will be near 35 with a chance of precipitation is 100 percent.

Saturday night the NWS is forecasting a 100 percent chance of snow, mainly before 2 a.m.  With a low around 29.
