Early morning snow hit the streets of the area. When checking for closings and delays, WTOP is a great source.

Be aware of slippery snow patches on the sidewalks and frozen steps as you commute to work or run errands. The sun is out, but with temperatures in the low 20s, it won’t be enough to melt away the patches.

The DC Government Snow Team has deployed 190 plows. They have been on their routes since last night at 10 pm.

“Major streets, bridges, elevated structures are being pre-treated with a brine/beet juice mixture to help prevent snow from sticking to the pavement. The weather forecast calls for snow to fall between 10 pm and 6 am with a possibility of up to one inch of accumulated snow”.

Good place to get weather closings and delays:

  • What’s the federal government doing this morning in reaction to the snow? According to, “Federal Government in Washington Area- Federal Agencies will operate with a 2 hour delay as well as unscheduled leave. (Monday)”
  • As for the DC government, “D.C. Government- Open. Liberal leave in effect (Monday)”
  • What about DC public schools? ” D.C. Public Schools- 2 hr. delay – Central offices open on time. (Monday)”
