A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect, as of midnight, for Arlington and much of the rest of the D.C. area.
The National Weather Service says 4-6 inches of snow is possible throughout the day today (Saturday) inside the Beltway, but other forecasters say we could see as little as an inch.
Road crews were busy pre-treating local roads and highways Friday in anticipation of the snow, which is expected to begin falling soon.
