Some West Virginia residents may be in for a white Christmas, maybe quite nice in the mountain areas.

There's a 50 to 80 percent chance of snow for Wednesday across much of the state.

Most areas aren't expected to get much, if any, accumulation, unless they're hit by a storm expected to move north to New England, although the NSW update indicates otherwise.

LOCAL FORECAST

Tuesday:

Rain...sleet and wet snow likely. Daytime snow accumulations of an inch or less. Highs in the upper 30s. East winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation 70 percent.

Tuesday Night:

A mixture of wet snow and rain...becoming all snow after midnight. An inch of overnight snow accumulation is possible. Lows near 30. Southwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation 80 percent.

Colder with snow. Any daytime accumulation expected to be light. Temperatures falling into the upper 20s. Northwest winds around 15 mph. Chance of snow 80 percent.

Bird lovers have been advised they may need to put out more seed and break the ice on bird baths this winter.

The dry summer made food harder to find and many bugs have died out.

Experts say more than 80 percent of a bird's diet comes from the wild, and backyard feeders are only supplements.
