Welcome to Spring: Storm Could Bring a Foot of Snow

This morning’s rain is giving way to sleet and, before too long, snow. By Wednesday, some parts of Loudoun County could be under 12 inches, according to a Winter Storm Warning issued this afternoon.

The forecast is calling for about an inch of accumulation in the area today. Conditions are expected to worsen Wednesday, when 6-12  inches of snow is possible. Residents are urged to plan for slippery road conditions.

Schools in Loudoun County are closed Wednesday.

The School Board will hold its planned 4 p.m. work session until approximately 5 p.m. The 6:30 p.m. portion of the meeting has been canceled.

The attendance boundary hearing scheduled for tonight will be held at the next regular School Board meeting on April 10.
