Winter Storm Warning Until 1 p.m.
Posted 9:36 a.m.
The National Weather Service has now issued a winter storm warning for the county and some surrounding areas until 1 p.m. 3-6 inches of snow are now expected in some locations.
Roads are difficult to navigate in many areas of the county this morning. Please drive with caution and watch for pedestrians. Pedestrians and transit riders, please be careful outside.
The Police Department’s accident policy is now in effect, meaning that if you are involved in a minor fender-bender, with NO injuries and NOT blocking the roadway, please move off of the roadway, exchange relevant information regarding driver’s license, vehicle registration information and automobile insurance coverage.
Two other reminders because we have received many questions on this blog and social media platforms:
- Fairfax County Public Schools makes its own status decisions, not the county government. Visit www.fcps.edu for any changes.
- The Virginia Department of Transportation plows our county roads, not the county government. Check snow plow status.
What You Can Do
When the snow stops later today, please take time to remove the snow from your sidewalks. Visit our new webpage at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/shovel.
