Rain and snow are slated to hit Fairfax County tomorrow, possibly making roads slick from sudden weather changes.
The National Weather Service recently posted a Winter Weather Advisory at 2:58 p.m. today for Fairfax County and nearby areas beginning tomorrow.
NWS expects rain and snow late in the afternoon and early evening on Tuesday (Jan. 29). NWS anticipates about 1 to 3 inches of snow, with the abrupt transition from rain to snow creating poor driving conditions.
Commuters are encouraged to be aware of potential travel disruptions and allow for extra time getting back in the evening.
The advisory says the following:
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 10 PM EST
* WHAT…Any rain will change to snow during the afternoon hours.
Total snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches expected.
* WHERE…Portions of central and northern Maryland and northern
* WHEN…From noon to 10 PM EST Tuesday.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS…Plan on slippery road conditions. The
hazardous conditions will impact the evening commute.
Temperatures will fall well below freezing during the evening,
causing any moisture or slush to freeze on untreated surfaces.
A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will
cause primarily travel difficulties. Expect snow covered roads
and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can
be obtained by calling 5 1 1
From @NWS_BaltWash: If you plan on commuting Tuesday evening, be aware of the potential for travel disruptions. Plan ahead by allowing for extra travel time, and consider using public transportation and telework options. More details: https://t.co/zZL89SPjAy pic.twitter.com/3EfguqmsRi
