  • Storm Total Snow & Sleet
    on Ground at 8AM EST = 6"


    ...HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS OVERNIGHT THURSDAY - FRIDAY AM
    DUE TO BLACK ICE & FREEZING FOG...


    AS TEMPERATURES OVERNIGHT FALL INTO THE 20S...MELTED SNOW AND SLUSH FROM THURSDAY`S SNOWFALL WILL REFREEZE. THIS WILL MAKE FOR POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS TRAVEL INTO THE FRIDAY MORNING RUSH HOUR...ESPECIALLY ON SECONDARY AND NEIGHBORHOOD ROADS...AND BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES. MOTORISTS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR AREAS OF BLACK ICE ON AREA ROADWAYS. IN ADDITION...PATCHY FOG IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE DEVELOPING ACROSS PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN VIRGINIA DUE TO SOME CLEARING AND LIGHT WINDS. THE FOG MAY DEPOSIT A LIGHT COATING OF ICE ON ROADS...ENHANCING THE DRIVING DANGER OVERNIGHT. IF YOU ENCOUNTER AN ICY PATCH...RELEASE THE ACCELERATOR...AND PUMP YOUR BRAKES LIGHTLY TO AVOID SKIDDING. DRIVE DEFENSIVELY AND ALLOW FOR EXTRA TIME TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION. AVOID ANY SUDDEN STOPS OR ACCELERATIONS.
