As the first wet flakes of the area’s latest snow storm begin falling, Arlington County is warning that “efforts to clear neighborhood roads will be set back, possibly by days.”
“Snoverkill,” as the storm is now being called, will dump another 7-14 inches of sleet and snow on the region, according to the National Weather Service. But the real danger may be the wind.
The Capital Weather Gang is warning of gusts up to 50 miles per hour tomorrow. Such strong winds could easily knock down scores of snow-laden trees and power lines throughout the region.
Weary Arlington County snow removal teams are halting their effort to treat neighborhood streets and will now focus on keeping main roadways clear, according to an email from the county to local civic associations.
If you’re planning on driving tonight or tomorrow, remember your snow plow etiquette.
