Winter storm shuts down schools across W.Va.

MORGANTOWN (AP) — Public schools in 29 of West Virginia’s 55 counties are closed Monday because of a winter storm.

West Virginia University has canceled classes at its main campus in Morgantown. The university says the WVU Libraries, the Mountainlair and other facilities will remain open.

Winter storm warnings remain in effect across the state through Monday afternoon.

The National Weather Service says northern and western West Virginia could receive up to 8 inches of snow, with up to 10 inches in Preston and Tucker counties. Parts of the Eastern Panhandle also could receive up to 8 inches of snow.

In southeastern West Virginia, Greenbrier, Mercer, Monroe and Summers counties are under a flood watch due to heavy rain mixing with snow melt from higher elevations.
