ALEXANDRIA, Va. — For the first time in a year and three days, I went out to measure snow. Overnight about 1 1/4 inches of beautiful white powder blanketed the city of Alexandria. Elsewhere in the Washington, D.C. region, accumulations varied and I hope to get a reading from Tysons in about 2 hours.
Traffic volume and speed along northbound Van Dorn Street and Interstate 395 suggested that those roads were adequately treated around 6:30 a.m. By 7:15 a.m., I-395 was backed up as normal.
D.C. area forecast: Flakes end early but still numbingly cold, next snow chance late Friday – Capital Weather Gang, The Post
