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
