Slick Roads, Snowy Scenes Around Tysons Area and Fairfax County

Update at 4 p.m. — Fairfax County Public Schools will be closed Monday, the school system just announced.

Earlier: The snowiest D.C. area storm since 2016 is starting to wind down — though more snow is on the way and another 2-3 inches of accumulation possible.

VDOT crews have been working hard to clear roads throughout Fairfax County, but officials are still urging residents to stay home due to slick conditions.

Earlier this afternoon Virginia State Police said troopers in its Fairfax Division have responded to 34 crashes and 52 disabled vehicles since midnight. Statewide, more than 230 crashes were handled by VSP during that timeframe.

“Drivers be advised — looks can be and are deceiving!” state police said. “Highways may appear to be clear, but slick and icy conditions still exist.”

“On the second day of winter weather across northern Virginia, drivers are asked to continue to avoid unnecessary travel for crews to safely clear accumulating snow,” VDOT urged.

As of 1 p.m., just over 6 inches of snow had fallen on McLean, according to the National Weather Service.

In Tysons, NBC 4’s David Culver has been broadcasting from the parking lot of a local shopping center for most of the day.

The Vienna Community Center is closed today and “all programs, services, and rental activities for today (January 13) are cancelled,” according to the Town of Vienna.

In the City of Falls Church, a snow emergency has been declared and parking restrictions are in place.
