More Nasty Weather Headed Here Saturday

Ice covered trees/File photoMore winter weather is heading our way on Saturday.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Reston and the Metro D.C. area. Fairfax County Public Schools has canceled all Saturday activities on school grounds.

The NWS says there may be a mix of sleet, snow and freezing rain from 9 a.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. Sunday. That includes an accumulation of 1 to 3 inches of snow, as well as a coating of ice, says the NWS.

Snow is expected to start early Saturday afternoon into the evening, then mix with sleet before changing to freezing rain.

That forecast has caused FCPS — which had three snow days this week — to cancel activities. Among the cancelations:

  • extracurricular activities
  • interscholastic contests
  • team practices
  • field trips
  • professional learning and training courses
  • adult and community education classes
  • recreation programs and community use by outside groups not affiliated with FCPS
  • testing

The Fairfax County Park Authority says all FCPA-sponsored classes and events held in FCPS facilities are also canceled, but RECenters and other FCPA facilities will be open normal business hours.
