UPDATE: The National Weather Service (NWS) has updated the projected totals from the one to two inches expected as of last night.
According to NWS, a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 12 a.m. to 4 p.m. tonight, and snow accumulations between two to four inches for the area are expected.
Road conditions will be slippery, particularly along the I-95 corridor, with reduced visibility.
“A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving. The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1,” stated NWS.
Tomorrow night could bring the first winter weather of the season.
According to the National Weather Service (NWS), on Friday night snow is likely, beginning at 1 a.m.
While the chance of precipitation is at 60%, there is likely to be less than half an inch of accumulation, says NWS.
Snow is also possible on Saturday, with accumulations during the day at around an inch, and snow showers before 1 a.m. on Saturday evening according to NWS.
The Virginia Department of Transportation is not taking any chances, and has already pre-treated the roads across Prince William County in preparation for the possible snowfall.
