From a press release:

“Mayor Muriel Bowser will deploy more than 200 snow trucks at 4:00 a.m. Wednesday, January 21 for a winter storm that could bring up to one inch of snow, starting around 6:00 am and continuing possibly until 5:00 pm. The forecast calls for a mix of snow and rain with temperatures in the low 30sF and a high of 38F Wednesday afternoon. A slushy coating is forecasted for DC.

This will be the District’s fourth full deployment this month. All trucks should be on their routes by 5:30 am to begin salting residential and commercial roadways.

This storm could affect Wednesday morning’s commute, so whatever the mode of travel, people are asked to be cautious. Property owners are asked to put abrasives (de-icer, rock salt or non-clumping kitty litter) on their sidewalks before the storm starts.”
