Photos: Snow Day in Arlington

Arlington’s biggest snowfall in two years is well underway.

As of 2 p.m., the National Weather Service reported an average of around 2 inches of snow in parts of Arlington. National Airport’s official measurement was 1.4 inches, while 2.4 inches was reported near Falls Church.

Across the county, main streets are largely clear but many side streets are snow covered. Traffic was light, as many stayed at home or ventured out on foot to enjoy sledding, snowball fights, or just to take in the snow globe-like scenes.


For those looking for good sledding hills, we compiled a number of options in 2015. As a preview of the upcoming results of the Winter 2021 Arlie awards, here are some of the top vote-getters in the “Best Hill to Go Sledding” category.

  • Jamestown Elementary
  • Nottingham Elementary
  • Tuckahoe Elementary
  • Reeves Farmhouse
  • Woodstock Park
  • Dorothy Hamm Middle School
  • Reed School (Westover)
  • Walter Reed Drive / “Superman Hill”

Another 1-2 inches or so of additional accumulation is expected through tonight. Though snow removal crews are out and about, authorities are continuing to caution drivers to stay at home if you don’t have to travel.

As of 2 p.m., Virginia State Police say troopers have responded to hundreds of crashes and disabled vehicles statewide, including 24 disabled vehicles and 16 crashes from its Fairfax Division, which includes Arlington.
