CHARLESTON & BECKLEY, WV - An impressively long-duration upslope snow event brought accumulating snow to West Virginia starting on New Year's Day and continuing through Thursday the 3rd. My 36-hour marathon 'winter weather chase' of this event started and ended in Charleston, with a short trip to Beckley to try to catch some thundersnow that had been reported at the airport. Despite the multi-day icy road conditions, the accident rate during this event was much lower than normal, possibly due to the light and powdery fine-grained snow that was less slick than usual.
