While the heaviest precipitation is expected to fall more toward the western part of Virginia, the National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory at 4:00 p.m. today for Fairfax County, predicting that the area will see mixed precipitation with about one to three inches of snow and sleet accumulation.
The advisory will be in effect from 10 a.m. on Wednesday to 1 a.m. on Thursday.
“Plan on slippery road conditions,” the NWS says. “The hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute.”
That forecast is a slight downgrade from the agency’s projections on Monday, when it issued a winter storm watch suggesting that Fairfax County could see more than five inches of snow.
Still, FCPS has decided to close all school buildings to students.
