By  | 

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- An arctic blast is taking aim at West Virginia.

Wind chill advisories and warnings are in effect through Sunday afternoon throughout the state and until Monday morning in the Northern Panhandle. Overnight readings could dip below zero, and combined with strong winds could make it feel 20 to 30 below zero in many cities.

The National Weather Service says wind gusts could reach 60 mph along higher ridges in eastern parts of the state that could topple trees and power lines.

Snow accumulations in some areas could reach four inches by Sunday morning.
