The National Weather Service downgraded Fairfax County and the rest of the D.C. area from a Winter Storm Watch to a Winter Weather Advisory this morning.
As of 11:03 a.m., the NWS predicted that there could be up to an inch of additional snow accumulation by noon, resulting in one to three inches of total accumulation from today’s storm.
Here is more from the most recent alert:
…WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON EST
* WHAT…Snow. Additional snow accumulations of up to one inch. Storm total snow of 1 to 3 inches.
* WHERE…Portions of The District of Columbia, central, northern and southern Maryland and central and northern Virginia.
* WHEN…Until noon EST today.
* IMPACTS…Plan on slippery road conditions.
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.
Though the snow is expected to turn into rain this afternoon, the Fairfax County Office of Emergency Management advises shoveling snow from driveways and sidewalks to prevent it from refreezing when temperatures drop tonight.
