Several school and government services and community activities are being canceled Friday in anticipation of afternoon snow.
The Capital Weather Gang anticipates 1 to 2 inches of snow will fall between 2 and 5 p.m. Friday.
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."
The following services and activities in and around Kingstowne are affected as of 11:10 a.m.:
- Fairfax County Government offices and courts will remain open. "Each court will make their own decision about any early closing," the county wrote on its emergency blog.
- The Kingstowne Library and the John Marshall Library remain open for regular hours.
- The Lee District RECenter will be open for regular hours. However, all classes have been canceled for Friday.
- Fairfax Connector bus service is operating normally, but "may be affected by the inclement weather," the county says. Check the Connector Web page atwww.fairfaxconnector.com or call 703-222-9764 for any operating changes.
Patch will update this with more service and road closures as they happen.
