Fairfax County Schools will be closed Tuesday — the second day in a row — as heavy snow is scheduled to fall in the morning.

School Age Child Care Centers (SACC) will also be closed. Fairfax County government will be open, but employees can take unscheduled leave.

All Reston Community Center programs are canceled Tuesday. The pool will open at 9 a.m. For current status, call 703-476-4500.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning through Tuesday afternoon, with snowfall of 3 to 5 inches for the Reston area.

The Virginia Department of Transportation is advising motorists to check road conditions ahead of their commute, and to limit travel or use caution.

More than 1,200 trucks and plows will be out beginning at 4 a.m. Tuesday, VDOT said.

Residents can see the status of plowing in northern Virginia neighborhoods at www.vdotplows.org. Once it snows more than two inches, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William residents can enter their address and a color-coded map shows whether plowing is underway, completed, or not yet started in their neighborhood.

Report road problems to 1-800-FOR-ROAD (367-7623) or [email protected].
