Loudoun County Public Schools will close one hour early today because of anticipated snowfall. The Capital Weather Gang anticipates 1 to 2 inches of snow will fall between 2 and 5 p.m. Friday.
All after-school activities requiring bus transportation in Loudoun also are canceled. Other school activities not requiring transportation services are at the discretion of each school's principal. All bus routes will operate normally with the exception of running one hour early.
A winter weather advisory from the National Weather Service is in place from 2 to 9 p.m. for Loudoun and surrounding counties.
The service predicts "snow will begin during the mid-afternoon and taper off in the evening. Snow may be moderate to locally heavy at times during the late afternoon and early evening."
Roads will become snow covered and slippery, the service says, "resulting in hazardous travel during the afternoon and evening commute."
Patch will update this with more service and road closures as they happen.
