Prince William County Schools (PWCS) will close three hours early today, ahead of expected winter weather.
Between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. today a wintry mix is expected to move through the area, causing issues with the evening commute, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).
“The primary threat will be light ice accumulation from sleet and freezing rain that freezes on contact with extremely cold ground surfaces,” stated NWS.

There will also be a Code Red for PWCS employees at 2 p.m.
