(WASHINGTON, DC) The District Snow Team will deploy 50 plows, starting at 9 pm, Wednesday, December 14, to be ready for the possibility of light snow to fall overnight. There is a 30% probability of snow, so the crews will focus attention on bridges, elevated structures, overpasses, and ramps. While little accumulation is expected, temperatures will be below freezing and possible single-digit wind chill temperatures may occur on Thursday. Motorists are asked to drive carefully and remove any snow from their vehicles before travelling.
