“The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for a half inch of snow from 6 PM to Midnight. Snow showers are most likely between 6 PM and 8 PM. Winds will be from the south around 5 mph through this evening. Winds will become northwest, with gusts up to 30 mph toward midnight. Temperatures will be in the upper 20’s to lower 30’s toward midnight.

Stay informed and exercise caution when driving in any snow showers this evening, especially on untreated roads. Even a small snow accumulations will cause untreated roads to become icy.”

From Alert DC:

“Mayor Muriel Bowser has directed the DC Snow Team to go into a full deployment Friday, February 12. The District will deploy about 200 plows by noon, based on weather reports that call for a coating to a half inch of snow to fall between Friday afternoon and midnight. Below-freezing temperatures may cause snow to stick to the pavement and affect Friday’s afternoon rush hour. The Snow Team will pretreat bridges and overpasses as well as the freeways and other major routes tonight and tomorrow until snow begins to fall.”
