Update at 12:30 p.m. — The National Weather Service reports 3.3 inches of snow accumulation in Ballston as of about 12:20 p.m.
Earlier: It’s a winter wonderland out there, but most roads remain passable.
Traffic is light around Arlington, with schools, the federal government and all county facilities like community centers closed. But with 2 inches of snow on the ground as of 8:30 a.m., no major crashes or problems have been reported on the county’s mostly snow-covered roads.
Residential trash and recycling collection has been cancelled for the day and will resume Thursday, delayed by a day for the rest of the week.
VDOT is still urging drivers to stay inside today, with snow changing to sleet, freezing rain and then just rain this afternoon.
“Drivers are asked to avoid travel for safety today as a winter storm moves through the region with a range of precipitation,” VDOT said. “Pockets of heavier snow may limit visibility and stick to the pavement, and a mix of freezing rain may quickly make roads slick.”
