A Thursday evening snowstorm dumped about two inches of snow on Reston, making it slow going for those who have to get somewhere Friday morning.

The snow will stick around for a bit too. Friday is expected to be unusually cold and windy. The high is 22 degrees, but with strong winds it should feel like the single digits.

Here is what you need to know:

FCPS is still closed for winter break, but all school activities such as sports practices or community events held in the schools) are cancelled.

Fairfax County Government has declared unscheduled leave for employees.

The Fairfax County Circuit Court, General District Court and Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court are open on time.

Check road conditions on the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Virginia511 website. To see if a plow is headed to your neighborhood, check the VDOT Plows site.

As of 8:15 a.m., Dominion Virginia Power reported more than 1,700 customers in Fairfax County without power, but it seems Reston was unaffected by outages.
