Three-to-six inches of snow and ice are expected in Alexandria, as the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning that will remain in effect from 3 a.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. on Friday.
The NWS predicts heavy snow with sleet and freezing rain throughout the region, and up to a quarter of an inch of ice. The snowfall is expected to start between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. and the snow will turn into sleet in the late morning and early afternoon hours.
“Power outages and tree damage are likely due to the ice,” NWS said. ” Travel could be nearly impossible. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute… The highest ice accumulation is most likely east of Interstate 95.”
NWS recommends that travelers keep flashlights, food and water in case of an emergency.
Winter weather is back. Prepare for snow, freezing rain & sleet. Coordinate with your neighbors to park on the same side of the street when possible, and in general consider where your car is currently parked. Crews are brining roads.#Snow2021#AlexandriaVA#BeWeatherAware pic.twitter.com/JJLcLTEgTH
