WVC 2-2-2 §2-2-2. When acts to be done fall on Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday; adjournments from day to day.
(a) When a proceeding is directed to take place or any act to be done on any particular day of the month or within any period of time prescribed or allowed, including those provided by article two, chapter fifty-five, of this code, if that day or the last day falls on a Saturday, Sunday, legal holiday, or a weather or other emergency day, the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, legal holiday, or a weather or other emergency day shall be deemed to be the one intended, and when the day upon which a term of court is directed by law to commence, falls on a Saturday, Sunday, legal holiday, or a weather or other emergency day, the following day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, legal holiday, or a weather or other emergency day shall be deemed to be the day intended. When an adjournment is authorized from day to day, an adjournment from Friday to Monday will be legal.

(b)(1) For purposes of this section, "weather or other emergency day" means a day designated for a county in accordance with the provisions of subdivision (2) of this subsection as a day upon which weather or other emergency conditions in that county prevent the general transaction of court business in that county.

(2) A weather or other emergency day is designated by order of the chief justice of the supreme court of appeals or by order of the chief judge of the circuit court of the county in which the proceeding is directed to take place or in which the act is to be done.
