Weather Alert: Fairfax County Schools to Close Two Hours Early Due to Snow

Light snow is expected between noon to 7 p.m. today (Tuesday) in the area. Fairfax County Public Schools will close two hours early today.

In a winter weather advisory, the National Weather Service says to expect between one to three inches of snow in the area.

The alert covers northeastern and central Maryland, as well as the Baltimore Metropolitan area.  The heaviest snow could complicate the evening commute from 3-6 p.m.

Here’s more from the NWS:

* IMPACTS…Snow covered and slippery roads are expected especially northwest of Interstate 95 into the evening commute.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS…Snow rates could exceed one inch per hour with visibility around one-half mile at times.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS… Slow down and use caution while traveling. When venturing outside, watch your first few steps taken on steps, sidewalks, and driveways, which could be icy and slippery, increasing your risk of a fall and injury.
