Prepare Now for Possible Snowstorm, County Says

Arlington residents should “take steps today to prepare for winter weather,” the county’s emergency management office says.

Snow is in the forecast for seven of the next eight days, and the National Weather Service is cautioning of a winter storm threat from Thursday into Friday. (See below.)

Via social media, county officials this morning recommended “picking up a few extra non perishable foods,” along with sand for icy sidewalks. Residents should also check on “neighbors who may need help,” the emergency management office said.

An early trip to the grocery store may avoid crowds, while an early online grocery delivery order may avoid a lack of available delivery windows.

Arlington’s Dept. of Environmental Services, meanwhile, says it is “watching the developing forecast through Friday” and is prepared to pre-treat local roads with brine.
