West Virginia could have some turbulent weather from what forecasters are calling a "Frankenstorm," but most areas will likely experience heavy rainfall and lots of wind, some turbulent.

West Virginia's emergency responders are on alert regrading severe weather that could strike the Mountain State starting Sunday night and Monday morning, mostly a result of Hurricane Sandy and the confluence of other weather conditions.

Weathercasters are concerned about the weather stalling over the region.

The NWS says if the storm continues along its current track, the weather event could include high winds, torrential rain and snow, and could last through Wednesday.

West Virginia mountains could see a heavy snowfall.

But the NWS service says if the storm tracks south, a week long weather event could take place in WV.

This could result in rainfall amounts of up to 6 inches and snow in the lowlands. Possible blizzard conditions could occur in higher elevations with as much as 2 feet of snow accumulating.

Temps are going to drop dramatically.

WV responders have regrouped from this summer's Derecho wind storm, and are better prepared, they say.

At the very least there will be some funky weather.
