Tuesday morning began with a mix of rain and snow around the region, with temperatures hovering right around the freezing mark. And that could lead to some difficult, and changing, conditions, on the roads.
Crews were pre-treating the roads beginning Monday evening, she said. Wet roads, she said, could be slippery, particularly on the usual danger spots: bridges, overpasses and ramps. Jennifer McCord, with the Virginia Department of Transportation, said in the pre-dawn hours that, depending on where you’re coming from, one trip from Virginia into the District could present “a variety of precipitation, a variety of road conditions.”
She added that, since temperatures are expected to drop over the course of the day, ice could form on roadways for the evening rush hour.
