Most roads in Arlington have become snow-covered throughout the course of the morning as the D.C. area’s first — and likely last — big snowstorm of the season continues.
A look at traffic cameras in various parts of the county shows light traffic and — for the most part — snowy but still drivable roads. Drivers are, however, having difficulty getting up and down some hilly streets.
Authorities have been urging those who do not absolutely have to get somewhere to keep their cars parked today.
Mass transit is still running, but at reduced service levels. WMATA made the following announcement around 10:30 a.m.
Due to deteriorating weather conditions, Metro is announcing the following service changes, effective as of 10:30 a.m. Wednesday:
Metrobus service is transitioning to a Severe Snow Plan, which will further limit service to major roadways only. Due to current road conditions, buses are subject to significant delays systemwide, and customers should travel only if absolutely necessary. For details about the Severe Snow Plan, visit: https://www.wmata.com/rider-guide/weather/bus/severe.cfm
MetroAccess service is no longer accepting “outbound” trips due to current weather conditions. Service will continue to be provided only for customers who need to be transported back to their residences.
Metrorail continues to operate on a modified schedule. Trains are operating about every 12-15 minutes on each line. There are no issues to report on the rail system at this time.
Arlington Transit buses, meanwhile, are also operating at “severe service” levels.

UPDATE: Traffic is light and most roads around Arlington appear to be snow-covered, though major arteries are being treated
Some 40 County trucks plus more than a dozen contractors continue to treat Arlington roads as the snow continues and they won't let up until well after the storm has passed. Please give them plenty of room. #ArlWX https://t.co/DIL3oSabSW pic.twitter.com/OPVcP7Xkw4
