Winter not through with WV: Snow and cold brings a weather shock to parts of the Mountain State: March 22, 2004
CHARLESTON and HAMLIN, WV - Just one day after temperatures in the 70s and thunderstorms on the first day of spring, winter makes it known that it's not done with West Virginia just yet. Heavy snow showers drifted over much of the state overnight late Sunday into Monday morning, particularly in areas such as Lincoln and Nicholas Counties. During the day on Monday, the snow and cold persisted in Charleston with a few peeks of sunshine making it through the clouds.
