The NWS said Thursday evening that West Virginia could even get more snow than originally predicted.

State officials said they're concerned about electrical outages with the wet snow.

Calhoun residents appear to be well prepared with shoppers stocking up on bread, milk, soda, beer and gasoline for generators.

The snowfall is expected to start about 10 a.m. Friday, but it could be earlier.

Meteorologists listed best and worst case scenarios along with what is most likely. The NWS has a Winter Storm Warning for almost the entire state from 7 a.m. Friday to 7 p.m. Saturday.

NWS Meteorologist Faith Borden said the storm has slowed down some, and can be expected to hit sometime in the morning.

"We're looking at snow starting about 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., so the storm has slightly slowed down a little bit," she said. "But it's definitely going to start snowing by then."

In much of the western area of the state, forecasting a most likely scenario of 8 to 16 inches of snow with a worst case scenario of 18 to 24 inches. The best case scenario is 3 to 6 inches.

In the eastern and more mountainous ares of the state, likely 16 to 24 inches with a worst case scenario of 20 to 30 inches. The highest mountains could get 40 inches of snow, meteorologists said. The best case scenario for that section of the state is 8 to 16 inches.

A state of preparedness has been in effect since Wednesday.
