Winter Weather Could Impact Friday Evening Commute

Snow in Reston/Credit: Kate Kihara via TwitterUpdate, 2 p.m. Friday: Fairfax County Public Schools have canceled all evening activities due to inclement weather.

A little bit of snow is likely heading here this evening. It’s not much, but it may be just enough to impact evening rush hour.

The Capital Weather Gang says about a half-inch of snow is expected to move through Northern Virginia about 6 p.m. But combined with very cold temperatures, that could make for icy roads and backed-up traffic, similar to what we saw on Jan. 20.

On Jan. 20, an early evening dusting turned short commutes into hours-long treks within Fairfax County and from DC to Northern Virginia.

The Virginia Department of Transportation says it will have 1,150 trucks deployed to continually treat roads by early afternoon. Crews began treating roads in advance yesterday and are finishing mid-day today, said VDOT.
