Today's rainy weather is expected to turn to snow in the evening and during the overnight hours, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation
VDOT crews will be on duty throughout the night treating and plowing the roads. Some winter weather has already affected Madison, Rappahannock and Fauquier counties, where road conditions are reported mostly clear with some slick spots.
Fauquier County Public Schools were cancelled Monday in anticipation of the poor weather and driving conditions.
VDOT encourages motorists to check weather and road conditions before their evening commute. With pavement temperatures below freezing overnight, roads are likely to be slick in the morning as well.
Winter weather driving tips
Slow down and allow plenty of time to reach your destination.
Keep a safe distance behind other vehicles and trucks that are plowing the road.
Use caution on bridges, overpasses and ramps, which tend to freeze first.
Be especially careful on roads carrying less traffic, such as subdivision streets.
New England is going to get the worst of the storm and meteorologists are predicting up to 30 inches of snow for the northern states.
