A wintry precipitation mix is expected to hit the region this evening (March 6) and continue into tomorrow morning, which Virginia Department of Transportation officials say could impact the morning commute.
Crews are treating the roads and are preparing for any necessary snow removal, though a tweet from the Capital Weather Gang notes that it is unlikely that much will stick. It’s more likely that there will be a buildup of slush.
VDOT has the following tips for the anticipated precipitation:
- Stay closely tuned to weather forecasts (see National Weather Service) overnight and through the day tomorrow.
- Consider teleworking or adjusting trips around the forecast. If roads are slick, delay trips for safety.
- Bridges, ramps, overpasses and lower-volume roads may become slick quickly with low pavement temperatures.
- Ensure gas and wiper fluid tanks are full, and have a good emergency kit. Here’s how: www.ready.gov/car.
- Be aware that low temperatures will mean continued potential for refreeze and slick road conditions.
Snow late tonight & Wed AM around DC likely to occur w/ temps above 32, so will be hard for a lot to stick. But if/when snow falls heavily, could cause slush to build-up. Wed AM commute could be affected w/ reduced visibility & some slick spots. More info: https://t.co/u55YqiQA8N pic.twitter.com/b9ftxEcLJM
