Lingering Slick Spots Possible this A.M.
Freezing road temps expected
FAIRFAX—(6 a.m.) While most areas of northern Virginia received a dusting of snow overnight, the Virginia Department of Transportation reminds drivers to stay alert to lingering slick spots. Road temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for the next several days.
Use particular caution if commuting to and from areas to the north and west of the region such as western Loudoun County where snow totals closer to two inches, and neighboring areas with higher totals such as West Virginia and Maryland.
Crews treated roads through the night with salt and sand and remain on duty for lingering slick spots.
VDOT continues to monitor forecasts for any weekend winter weather.
