Much of the heavy snowfall has left the area, and Alexandria remains under a Winter Weather Advisory until 6 a.m. Friday.
As of 1:05 p.m., the National Weather Service said the region should expect up to another inch of snow and sleet and up to one tenth of an inch of ice.
The Alexandria Fire Department says that no accidents have been reported since 9 p.m. Wednesday night.
“The roads are pretty clear, and T&ES and a number of other departments are continuing to monitor the situation and keep us updated,” AFD spokesperson Raytevia Evans told ALXnow. “For the most part, there hasn’t been a serious uptick in fire calls or EMS calls.”
Temperatures will be in the low 30s tonight, and are expected to climb to 41 degrees on Friday. No hazardous weather is anticipated for Friday through Wednesday.
“Plan on slippery road conditions,” NWS advised. “The hazardous conditions could impact the evening commute… 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.”
Why do we ask you to stay off the road for winter weather events? For starters, snow, sleet, and freezing rain can leave behind slick spots that are hard to see, to say nothing of overnight refreeze.
