“Mayor Muriel Bowser has directed the DC Snow Team to deploy Saturday, March 19, 2016. The District will deploy more than 100 plows, based on weather reports that call for a weather event starting as rain around mid-day Saturday, possibly mixing with snow Saturday evening then becoming all snow Saturday night into Sunday morning. Sunday’s prediction is for a return to rain then a possible rain/snow mix Sunday evening, ending Sunday night. There is a possibility of one to two inches of snow accumulating on grassy areas and producing slush on roadways, bridges, ramps and colder locations. The overnight low temperature Sunday night into Monday morning may go down to 31F, which could produce icy areas on roadways. Uncertainty remains in the forecast, so the public is asked to monitor weather forecasts and travel cautiously when driving. The Snow Team will not pre-treat because the rain will wash away the brine/beet juice solution.”
