The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Loudoun County Christmas Eve that will continue until 8 p.m.
Snow began falling in Loudoun County about 1:30 p.m. and as of 3:45 p.m. was continuing to fall in the Leesburg area.
The National Weather Service is calling for accumulation of 1 to 2 inches, mainly across elevations above 500 feet.
Drivers should be cautions when traveling today. A Winter Weather Advisory means travel could be difficult with slippery roads and limited visibility.
The snow today is the first significant winter weather event Loudoun has seen so far since the season officially began Dec. 21.
The county is expected to be covered in fog by 10 a.m. Christmas Day.
A chance of sleet and snow is possible after 5 a.m. Wednesday with less than a tenth of an inch of accumulation, according to the National Weather Service.
