OAK HILL – Snow continues to fall in Southern West Virginia, and that means dangerous road conditions are still possible.

Winter storm Janus plowed into our area early this morning and it has affected towns as far north as Bangor, ME where officials are expecting snow totals to reach 9 inches.

Here locally, trucks have been working non-stop to keep the roads free of snow and ice, and for many drivers in the city, all seems clear.

We talked to some folks in the area and they have mixed feelings on the latest bout of winter weather.

“It's a beautiful day,” says Regina Wriston of Oak Hill, “This is a warm snow, we have cold snows and warm snows, and this is a warm snow and I’m loving it.”

Tony Pacella of Fayetteville was grocery shopping today, and he says he is not looking forward to the weather continuing to worsen.

“I don't have to fool with these roads, or slide around, because I don't have four-wheel drive. I'm like the rest of us, getting some groceries before it happens.”

Danny Conner isn’t concerned about the conditions at all – he’s staying in for the day.

“Well I got four-wheel drive; I can get home, that's all that counts. Once I get home, I’m going stay home.”

The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory in effect from 7 p.m. Tuesday to noon on Wednesday. Stay tuned to Newswatch for more weather updates.
