Winds gusting as high as 50 mph will cause whiteout conditions in blowing snow. Significant drifting of the snow is likely.
A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout conditions, making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get
stranded, stay with your vehicle. For the latest road conditions in Virginia or Maryland, please call 5 1 1.
