Record lows set in West Virginia cities; warmer temps coming

The Free Press WV

Record-low temperatures have been set in parts of West Virginia as a blast of Arctic air swept through the state.

The National Weather Service says the thermometer dipped to 14-below zero Sunday morning in Elkins.

That broke the previous record of 12 below set in 1988.

In Parkersburg, the low of 7 below on Sunday broke the mark of 6 below set in 2014.

A warmup is on the way, but not before a wintry mix of snow and sleet hits the state on Monday with little accumulation expected.

The weather service says highs should rebound to the mid-60s in parts of West Virginia by Thursday.
