Nearly half of the state is bracing for snow as the Thanksgiving travel season gets underway in West Virginia.  

Forecasters say a nor’easter is making its way up the East Coast bringing precipitation Wednesday into Thursday, with snowfall expected in the higher elevations especially across central Appalachia.

Travel could become hazardous Wednesday on portions of Interstates 68, 64 and 81. WV511 will have the latest road conditions as well as a list of accidents and traffic delays available on their website.

As of Wednesday morning, power outages were being reported in many counties across the West Virginia for both First Energy and American Electric Power customers.
