Buses Resume Normal Service as Thaw Begins

The thaw is here and Metro says bus service is back to normal.

Though the transit agency previously estimated some of its lines would run on detours this morning, all buses were running normally as of 7:20 a.m.

Metro previously enacted its “severe snow plan” due to yesterday’s winter weather. Although patches of ice remain scattered across the area, the Capital Weather Gang says warmer temperatures and possibly heavy rainfall will thaw roads throughout the morning and afternoon.

But all that extra moisture could be too much of a good thing, according to the National Weather Service. The area is under a flood watch until 11 p.m.
