As whiteout conditions sweep through the City of Falls Church, the National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for the Northern Virginia and D.C. area, including the City. The blizzard warning remains in effect until 7 p.m. this evening.

Snow accumulation of 6 to 12 inches is expected and will continue through the evening with the heaviest snow expected in the morning. Temperatures will be in the mid and upper 20s. Winds of 20 to 30 miles per hour with gusts up to 45 miles per hour will blow and drift snow, reducing visibilities to between a quarter of a mile or less at times, producing blizzard conditions.

Because of the poor visibility and severe winter weather conditions, traveling is extremely dangerous and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recommends people stay indoors. If travel is necessary, the NOAA urges you take a winter survival kit. If you do become stranded, stay in your vehicle.
