Winter Storm Warning for Prince William, Greater Manassas, Replaces old Advisory
– December 9, 2013 9:40 pm
A winter storm warning will be in effect for Prince William, Fairfax, Loudoun counties, as well as the cities of Manassas, Manassas Park, and Washington, D.C. from 2 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday. It replaces the winter weather advisory that was slated to go into effect during the same time frame.
A winter weather advisory remains unchanged for Stafford County and points south, as it will go into effect at 3 a.m. and last until 2 p.m. Tuesday.
All of this comes with another round of winter weather that could bring two to four inches of new snow to our area during the day Tuesday. It should start by the morning rush hour, we’re told.
