A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Fairfax County through 9 a.m. tomorrow.
According to the National Weather Service, between one to two inches of snow is possible throughout much of the region.
Here’s more from the NWS alert:
IMPACTS…Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the evening and morning commute.
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS… Slow down and use caution while traveling. When venturing outside, watch your first few steps taken on steps, sidewalks, and driveways, which could be icy and slippery, increasing your risk of a fall and injury.
The Virginia Department of Transportation announced at 11 a.m. today that it has about 400 trucks staged along roads this afternoon to treat roads.
The department offered the following advice to drivers in preparation of possible wintry precipitation and freezing conditions:
- Closely monitor weather reports for shifts in forecasts in your area.
- Plan ahead. If road conditions become hazardous, delay travel for your safety and to give crews time to clear or treat roads.
- Be aware of the potential for ice. With freezing temperatures in the forecast, any precipitation may freeze quickly. If you must drive, use extreme caution in areas prone to freezing such as bridges, overpasses, hills, curves, and ramps. See more winter driving tips.
- Monitor road conditions from home on www.511virginia.org, on the free mobile app, or call 511 from any phone in Virginia.
