From the Mayor’s Office:

“Mayor Muriel Bowser will deploy more than 200 snow trucks at 8 am Sunday, February 1 for a winter storm that could bring snow and rain between Sunday and Monday morning. This will be the District’s sixth full deployment this winter. Snow may start falling Sunday morning then become a snow/rain mix later in the afternoon or evening. By 8 pm, the forecast is for all rain, which may continue through the night.

Snow is expected to begin falling between 7 am and 11 am Monday and may end by noon. Sunday’s forecast calls for a high of 40F and a low of 34F. Monday’s high temperature is expected to be 34F and the low may get as low as 10F.

All trucks should be on their routes by 9 am. This storm could affect the Monday morning rush hour, so whatever the mode of travel, people are asked to be cautious. Property owners are asked to put abrasives (pet safe de-icer, rock salt or non-clumping kitty litter) on their sidewalks before the storm starts.

Winter Weather Safety and Preparedness Tips: Motorists are asked to clear all snow from the vehicle first then drive cautiously. Assist elderly or disabled neighbors with clearing their sidewalks. Also, for plow drivers’ safety, “Don’t crowd the plow.” Residents are encouraged to go to snow.dc.gov for updates before, during and after winter storms, and for tips to get one’s home and family prepared for inclement weather.

Residents also may sign up at alertdc.dc.gov to receive emergency alerts and notifications from Alert DC. The deployment plan is developed and implemented based on predictions made by the weather services; however, predictions may change after the plan has been implemented. Under those circumstances, the District Snow Team will pivot as best as possible to meet the new conditions.

Leaf and holiday tree collections are suspended and will resume after the streets are cleared. The Department of Public Works will make every effort to follow its trash and recycling collections schedule; however, conditions in some neighborhoods may prevent collections from being made. Residents should hold onto their trash/recycling until the next collection day.

To track the plows, go to snow.dc.gov and click on Track Our Plows: http://snowmap.dc.gov/.”
