Weather forecasters are predicting snow will start falling after midnight with accumulations up to an inch possible across Chantilly, according to the National Weather Service—a huge change from Wednesday, when the high temperature at Dulles International Airport was 72 degrees.
Thursday night’s low temperature will be around 31 degrees, and high temperatures Friday will not be higher than 35 degrees.
Because this snow is driven by a “clipper” system, it is very unlikely our area will get more than a dusting.
Still, the Virginia Department of Transportation plans to treat highways and state roads in the region tonight.
In the event school is delayed tomorrow morning while crews treat roads, that information will be posted on Patch early Friday morning.
Looking ahead, the National Weather Service also predicts “light snowfall accumulations are possible across the area Saturday night through Sunday.”
