MARCH WEATHER MADNESS: WINTER IS MAKING A COMEBACK

Be prepared for winter weather beginning overnight Sunday

RICHMOND, Va. – It’s late in the game, but don’t count out winter just yet. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is cautioning motorists to prepare for winter weather overnight on Sunday and throughout the day Monday.

VDOT continues to monitor the forecast, and crews are ready to respond. The timing, type of precipitation and accumulations will vary across the state. Some areas will see periods of rain and snow; others will see mostly snow. There also is a possibility of freezing rain in some locations Monday morning.

Keep an eye on the local forecast, and be prepared for the possibility of slippery roads. Impacts may continue through Monday night, and with temperatures below freezing, roadways may refreeze Tuesday morning.

Motorists are reminded to:

Know the local weather forecast

Give snow plows the right of way

Keep a safe distance from other vehicles

Allow extra time to reach their destinations

Current road conditions are available at www.511virginia.org, through the free mobile app or by calling 511. VDOT’s Customer Service Center can take reports of severe road conditions and answer questions around the clock at 800-FOR-ROAD (367-7623).

(END)

Note: VDOT clears all state-maintained roads. Incorporated cities and towns clear their own streets, as do Arlington and Henrico counties.
