From DPW:

“Mayor Muriel Bowser will deploy the District Snow Team, starting at 11 pm Wednesday, February 25 with a full deployment of more than 200 snow trucks that will be on their routes by 1 am Thursday, February 26. Wednesday morning, the District Snow Team began pre-treating bridges and ramps with a sodium-chloride brine mixed with beet juice to help retard freezing on these surfaces.

A light snow, possibly up to 1 inch is expected overnight starting after 1-2 am Thursday with temperatures in the 20Fs. Thursday’s high temperature is expected to be 30F with some sun possible in the afternoon.”
