As the storm approaches, here are 8 things to know:
1.) Get Where You Need to Be Before the Weather Gets Bad: Snow is expected to start falling tonight around 8, so there’s still time to prepare.
2.) VDOT Snow Removal: The Virginia Department of Transportation is responsible for snow removal on most county roads. VDOT is aggressively pre-treating roads throughout Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William and Arlington counties in advance of tonight’s heavy snow. By midnight, almost 4,000 trucks will be staged along interstates, major roads and neighborhood streets.
