Elsewhere in the state, the storm dumped up to 10 inches of snow, caused minor flooding and prompted college campuses and public schools to call off classes.
High water cut off access to rural roads in Greenbrier, Pendleton and Raleigh counties, and Deckers Creek rose a foot above flood stage in Sabraton, Monongalia County.
The Monday storm closed public schools in 38 counties, Shepherd University in Shepherdstown and Jefferson County's government offices. West Virginia University canceled classes at its Morgantown campus.
The National Weather Service said preliminary snowfall totals included 10 inches in Morgantown, 8 in Fairmont and 7 in Elizabeth and Parkersburg.
Wier said conditions in the Charleston area should improve Tuesday, with temperatures in the mid-40s and very little precipitation. But rain could bring another flood threat in the state Tuesday night, along with freezing rain in the Eastern Panhandle, according to the Weather Service.
