Winter Weather Guide
Posted at 11:30 a.m.
Even though the first official day of winter — the winter solstice — isn’t until Dec. 21, cold temperatures have already arrived and it’s beginning to feel like winter.
Our NewsCenter has compiled some of the more frequently asked issues/questions in a helpful winter weather guide.
While we’re not in the weather prediction business, it’s a fairly safe to say that Fairfax County will be affected by winter weather — whether that’s extreme cold, snow, sleet/ice or a combination of those.
So, the best thing to do is to be prepared. We encourage you to read through this winter weather guide and to get ready for winter so you’ll be able to respond to and recover from whatever Old Man Winter may throw our way.
