Up to four inches of snow is expected to fall over Alexandria tonight, and the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for region that will remain in effect from 7 p.m. today until 10 a.m. Thursday.
“Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute,” NWS said in the alert. “When venturing outside, watch your first few steps taken on steps, sidewalks, and driveways, which could be icy and slippery, increasing your risk of a fall and injury.”
NWS said to expect two-to-four inches snow, possibly mixed with sleet and rain at times. Additionally, there is a “slight winter threat” for this Saturday and next Tuesday, which is the day after the President’s Day holiday on Monday.
“If these threats materialize, it may cause travel disruptions,” NWS said.
