After a day of nervous anticipation that saw most schools and government facilities close early today, the snow is now here — and so is the traffic.
Very heavy traffic has been reported on I-395, Washington Blvd and parts of the GW Parkway, as long as in the Rosslyn area, as commuters try to get home early before the streets turn slippery.
As of 4 p.m., large flakes were falling outside of ARLnow’s office in Ballston, while grassy areas in the neighborhood were starting to turn white. Roadways, however, are mostly wet — but falling temperatures threaten to turn wet roads icy tonight.
Arlington County crews have started treating roads with salt and expect to continue a “full storm” response through at least Wednesday night.
“Prepare for a slow Wednesday morning” commute, said Arlington’s Dept. of Environmental Services.
Update 3:30 pm: Crews have been putting rock salt down as the precipitation has shifted from rain to snow. The damp streets keep the salt from spreading, making it more effective. County government and @APSVirginia closing early. #ArlWX https://t.co/hnVwQngape pic.twitter.com/60kAIK4Ttr
