Best advice: Stay off the roads this evening and take it very slowly in the morning. There will be black ice. Crews continue to work residential neighborhoods in Phase 3 but refreeze makes plowing more difficult. #ArlWX https://t.co/JnvPU3tlvu https://t.co/9l6ChO0rdO

Earlier: Arlington Public Schools will likely open on a two-hour delay tomorrow (Tuesday), as forecasters warn of a re-freeze of melting snow on county roads.
The school system announced that it will open schools and offices two hours late “based on the current forecast and conditions for tomorrow morning,” but officials plan to release a final update at 6 a.m. Tuesday morning.
That means any “essential personnel” and food service workers should still report to work on time. However, APS says it will watch for “deteriorating weather and road conditions” overnight and early tomorrow.
County workers are already warning of below-freezing temperatures making roads a bit icy overnight, and forecasters fully expect that to cause more problems tomorrow. County offices, courts, and facilities are set to open as normal tomorrow, however.
