CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Some parts of West Virginia are buried by more than a foot of snow as a winter storm barrels across the state.

Preliminary snowfall totals from the National Weather Service include 18 inches in Mount Storm, 14 inches in Capon Bridge, 15 inches in Jefferson County, 16 inches in Athens and more than 14 inches in Ronceverte.

Winter storm warnings remain in effect across the state through Thursday afternoon.

Public school systems in 50 of the state's 55 counties are closed Thursday, along with several public and private colleges and universities.

The state Supreme Court says court systems are closed in Clay, Mingo, Mercer, McDowell and Raleigh counties.

The West Virginia Department of Transportation's website shows conditions on interstates and other major highways are fair to hazardous.
