Before the big storm hits Northern Virginia Friday and Saturday, there may be a small one.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Wednesday from 6 p.m. to midnight.
The NWS warns of about an inch of accumulation that could make for snow-covered and slippery roads. That means just enough slick roads to mess up this afternoon’s commute.
