Mayor Bowser Upgrades to Full Deployment for DC Snow Team Thurs., Feb. 4; 1-2 Inches of Snow Possible

Thursday, February 4, 2016

(WASHINGTON, DC) Mayor Muriel Bowser upgraded the DC Snow Team to a full deployment, starting at midnight Thursday, February 4 based on the possibility 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulating overnight. The weather system will begin as rain then change to snow, which could affect the morning rush hour. The temperature may be in the low 30s, so ice patches may form.

Motorists are asked to drive cautiously and, if possible, take public transportation instead of driving. Residents and businesses should apply abrasives this evening to the sidewalks around their properties to reduce the possibility of icing. This also will allow easier removal of ice from the sidewalks after the storm ends.

The deployment consists of nearly 200 plows that will be positioned on bridges and overpasses as well as the freeways, major routes and residential streets to monitor conditions and spread salt when necessary. The deployment will continue until the threat of snow has passed.

The DC Snow Team asks residents and businesses to listen to radio, television or NOAA Weather Radio for weather reports and emergency information. The social media sites below also will provide information about the DC Snow Team's deployment.
