West Virginia is located in the eastern United States. West Virginia lies in the very heart of the Appalachian Highlands, and its predominantly mountainous terrain and picturesque scenery have led to its nickname as the Mountain State. The state’s unusually irregular boundaries, formed largely by rivers and mountains, give it the shape of a large pan with two handles, one in the north and one in the east. For this reason it is sometimes called the Panhandle State.

West Virginia is known for its magnificent scenery and its abundance of natural resources, including coal, oil, gas, and timber. It is one of the leading producers of bituminous coal among the states and is also noted for the manufacture of fine glass. West Virginia, plagued for many years by economic stagnation, has recently attempted to diversify its industrial activity. Yet the state remains one of the poorest in the United States.

West Virginia entered the Union on June 20, 1863, as the 35th state. It was part of Virginia until the American Civil War (1861-1865), when its inhabitants, loyal to the Union, formed a separate state after Virginia became part of the Confederacy. Charleston is West Virginia’s capital and largest city.

West Virginia ranks 41st in size among the states, with a total area of 24,232 square miles, including 145 square miles of inland water. The maximum distance from north to south is 236 miles; the maximum extent from east to west is 264 miles. Its mean elevation of 1,500 feet above sea level makes West Virginia the highest state east of the Mississippi River. Elevations range from 240 feet, along the Potomac River in the northeast, to 4,863 feet, atop Spruce Knob in the east. Much of the land is mountainous. Flatlands are scarce, located mainly along the major river valleys.

The climate of West Virginia is characterized by warm humid summers and cold humid winters. However, the weather is subject to sudden changes at all seasons. The growing season ranges from less than 150 days along the northern border of the state to more than 190 days, principally in the south.

Average January temperatures range from less than 28° near the Cheat River to more than 38° along sections of the border with Kentucky. July averages range from less than 68° along the North Branch of the Potomac to more than 76° in the western part of the state. It is cooler in the mountains than in the lowlands.

Annual precipitation ranges from less than 32 inches in the eastern lowlands to more than 56 inches in higher parts of the Allegheny Front. Slightly more than half the rainfall occurs from April to September. Dense fogs are common in many valleys of the Kanawha section, especially the Tygart Valley. Snow usually lasts only a few days in the lowlands but may persist for weeks in the higher mountain areas. An average of about 32 inches of snow falls annually in Charleston, although during the winter of 1995-1996 more than three times that amount fell as several cities in the state established new records for snowfall.
