Light snow and freezing rain made for a slick commute for those who had to head in to work this morning There have been numerous accidents reported on local roads and highways, including several on the 1700 block of Lee Highway, near the intersection with N. Scott Street. Among those was a serious one-vehicle crash involving a minivan that ran off the road and into a wall along I-66. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 1:00 p.m. In an Arlington Alert, the county asked residents to drive carefully. “The weather should turn to all rain after 10 AM,” the alert said. “Please drive with caution.” Meanwhile, a water main break has shut down the eastbound lanes of Columbia Pike at S.
