Fairfax - During the time frame between Halloween and Christmas, Northern Virginia had been experiencing unseasonably warm weather with a few dips in temperature. This morning it looks as if winter has arrived.
Winter weather has moved into the Northern Virginia area, after a long stretch of unseasonably warm temperatures. On Christmas Eve some wet snow had moved into the area and on Christmas morning dense fog had arrived. This morning the region surrounding Washington, D.C. is seeing snow.
While Christmas Day saw mostly sunny skies in Fairfax County, the day after is another story. This morning this area of Northern Virginia awoke to snow, sleet and, with temperatures hovering around the freezing mark, probable slick spots on the roads during this morning's commute.
