Forecasters say an early spring storm could dump more than a foot of snow in parts of West Virginia.

The National Weather Service says eastern and southeastern sections of the state will be the hardest hit with up to 10 inches (25 centimeters) possible by Tuesday night. Additional amounts were possible on Wednesday.

Elsewhere in the state, the storm was expected to bring up to 6 inches (15 centimeters) of snow.

The weather service says heavy, wet snow combined with gusty winds could cause power outages.
