Crews are still cleaning up from last week’s back-to-back blizzards as another storm system moves closer to the D.C. region.
For the third time in 10 days, D.C. mayor Adrian Fenty has declared a snow emergency beginning at 9 a.m. Monday responding to a storm that could bring up to four inches of snow to the area.
The wintry mix of snow and rain is expected to start between 11 a.m. or 12 p.m. Forecasters say we could get anywhere from a light dusting to the full four inches.
The District’s snow emergency prohibits parking on snow emergency routes and major roadways. If you do, you could get ticketed and towed.
The D.C. Department of Transportation crews have already started treating the roads. Crews will continue to work in 12-hour shifts, clearing roads and residents are urged to avoid driving so they can clear the roadways.
The goal is to open more lanes and avoid a repeat of last Friday’s nightmarish commute after snow packed roads backed up traffic for hours across the region.
