The National Weather Service is predicting a possible 3 inches for the area
Brace up: the National Weather Service has another winter weather advisory for the Woodbridge area, starting at 8 pm. They are predicting a combo of snow, sleet, and freezing rain for the area, with accumulations ranging from 1 to 3 inches. The advisory is currently in effect until 9 am Tuesday. The advisory says snow will begin tonight between 8 and 11 pm, turning to sleet after midnight, and then freezing rain in the morning. Temperatures are to drop sharply, but rise to freezing around the end of the advisory at 9 am. Weather notice will be updated as new reports come in.
Quick-moving front spares real hardships; shoveling should be easy going.
The National Weather Service called the storm and the region got off fairly lucky. The roughly seven inches that fell was enough to cancel schools and non-essential services, but it feels like a light dusting after the post-Christmas blizzard two weeks ago. According to the service, this storm is the same one that pelted the south over the past few days. According to meteorologists, the storm moved through more quickly than anticipated, so the accumulations were kept to a minimum. Woodbridge residents who parked on snow emergency routes are encouraged to keep them off the streets until road crews finish their work.
