(Updated at 11:20 a.m.) Arlington is under a Winter Weather Advisory ahead of the arrival of snow today.
Forecasters say Arlington will get about 1-3 inches of accumulation, with snow starting this afternoon.
914 AM EST Fri Jan 28 2022
…WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 4 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 4 AM EST SATURDAY…
* WHAT…Snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches.
* WHERE…Portions of central, northwest and western Virginia.
* WHEN…From 4 PM this afternoon to 4 AM EST Saturday.
* IMPACTS…Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the evening 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.
VDOT and Arlington County crews are preparing for the wintry weather.
“Northern Virginia VDOT crews in Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William counties are pretreating roads on Friday,” VDOT said. “Please drive with caution around tanker trucks and safety trailing vehicles as they are heavy and move slowly.”
“Temperatures are expected to stay below freezing over the next several days, causing potential icy conditions,” the agency added. “Treat anything that looks wet as if it could be icy, especially bridges, ramps, overpasses, and elevated surfaces. If there is snow or ice on roadways, travel is hazardous.”
Arlington County is similarly asking residents to stay home during the storm if at all possible.
Plan to stay in tonight into the morning. Traveling during and right after a storm should be avoided. We likely get a few inches of snow but an overnight drop in temperature will make it slippery. Know the phases of winter storm response: https://t.co/DuInmBchJW. #ArlWX pic.twitter.com/LOLV7HrZGX

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.
Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
