Residents around the state woke up to a wintry mix of snow, rain, and ice Sunday morning. In many areas, multiple inches have fallen and local authorities are cautioning residents not to travel unless absolutely necessary. Many events have been canceled throughout the state, so please check the organization sponsoring the event before traveling.

For continued updates on this winter storm and its effects, please follow: The West Virginia Department of Transportation, the National Weather Service in Charleston, the West Virginia Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, and the State Department of Education (for school closings). 

Here's a look at some of the snowfall and winter weather around the state.
