Arlington Picks Up Another 2+ Inches of Snow

This morning, in western Pennsylvania, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and thus prognosticated six more weeks of winter.

If you were to only count the couple of hours after the prediction in Arlington, the groundhog was spot on.

Arlington residents woke up to another snow globe scene outside of their windows, with flakes flying from a narrow band of snow that seemingly targeted the I-95 corridor.

As of 8:30 a.m., the National Weather Service reported that 2.4 inches of snow has accumulated in the county over the past 24 hours. NWS also extended the Winter Weather Advisory that covers Arlington through 1 p.m.

807 AM EST Tue Feb 2 2021


* WHAT…Snow. Additional snow accumulations of up to two inches.

* WHERE… The District of Columbia, central, north central, northeast, northern and southern Maryland and central and northern Virginia.

* WHEN… Until 1 PM EST this afternoon.

* IMPACTS…Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning commute.


Slow down and use caution while traveling.

When venturing outside, watch your first few steps taken on steps, sidewalks, and driveways, which could be icy and slippery, increasing your risk of a fall and injury.

Across Arlington, plow crews largely kept pace with the falling snow. Most local roads remain wet, with only patches of snow.

“Crews continue to treat roadways this morning with hundreds of tons of salt but the weather still does its thing,” Arlington’s Dept. of Environmental Services said this morning on social media. “Avoid travel if possible. If not, go extra slow.”

Arlington’s schools are closed today in favor of all virtual learning. ART buses are running on a limited schedule due to the weather. More snow is possible throughout the day.

Kids are not the only ones enjoying playing in the snow. This morning, School Board member Barbara Kanninen posted a video of a playful fox frolicking through the snow in north Arlington.
