Wintry Mix Could Impact Wednesday Morning
Monitor forecasts and adjust commutes accordingly; Icy conditions possible
Overnight tonight, crews will load and stage trucks in northern Virginia, ready to treat roads with salt and sand through the the morning as needed.
- Stay closely tuned to forecasts (see National Weather Service)
- If conditions are icy, delay trips for safety.
- Assume any “wet” pavement to be icy. Bridges, ramps, overpasses and lower-volume roads will freeze first, and even previously treated roads become slick quickly with low pavement temperatures.
- Ensure gas and wiper fluid tanks are full, and have a good emergency kit: www.ready.gov/car.
