Snow Likely in Arlington Just Before Rush Hour; Some Events Canceled

Greater Washington area could see up to 2 inches; about an inch is expected to accumulate in Arlington.

The latest National Weather Service forecast calls for the highest chance of snowfall between 3 p.m. and 10 p.m. Friday in Arlington. Daytime snow accumulation of about an inch is possible, with little or no additional accumulation overnight.

Arlington Public Schools will dismiss on time, though after-school and evening activities are canceled. Extended Day will remain open until its regular 6 p.m. release time, but the school system encourages parents of children in that program to pick them up early.

Arlington County crews are on alert and scheduled to work through the evening if necessary, spokeswoman Laura G. Smith said in an email.

The county government will remain open normal business hours today.

All Parks and Recreation evening classes and nature center programs are canceled. All evening sports activities, leagues and instructional programs are canceled, too.

The county's elementary and teen after-school programs will proceed, though that may change if individual community centers close. All community centers are slated to remain open normal hours as of noon.

The broader National Weather Service forecast calls for up to 2 inches of snow to fall on the greater Washington area.
