Workers clear sidewalks during snowstorm in BallstonArlington County and the federal government are both opening on a two hour delay today (Friday).

Arlington Public Schools are closed. All preschool programs, Enjoy Arlington classes and sports leagues are canceled. Synthetic fields are closed.

Garbage collection will take place, and those whose garbage day is Thursday are also asked to put their carts out for collection.

An overnight refreeze may result in slippery conditions on the roads and sidewalks this morning. Pedestrians and drivers are encouraged to exercise extra caution.
