Winter storm warning issued for southeastern W.Va.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Weather officials say an ice storm is headed toward parts of West Virginia.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for seven counties from early Sunday through Monday morning. Counties in the warning area are Greenbrier, Mercer, Monroe, Pocahontas, Raleigh, Randolph and Summers.

The weather service says up to an inch of snow and sleet is possible through Sunday afternoon, and up to a half inch of ice is expected by Monday morning. Some higher elevations could see up to 3 inches of snow.

Officials warned that trees and power lines could topple under the weight of ice and that roads could become slick in the warning area.

Dozens of rural roads in the state remained closed Saturday due to high water from recent rains.
