Commuters may face wet, possibly icy roads during their journey Monday morning, as rain and snow hit some parts of the D.C. region.
There were no reports of serious crashes along any major highways in the area. Road crews in all three jurisdictions had been out overnight and into early Monday morning treating roads.
In Maryland, transportation officials said they had more than 1,700 pieces of snow equipment working to treat area roads. And in the District, officials said more than 200 trucks were deployed to pre-treat roads Sunday night before the morning commute.
Early Monday morning, most roads were just wet and slushy.
Many school districts in the region were closed or opening late, so officials warned there may be a delayed morning rush hour. School systems in Montgomery and the District, along with others, were opening two hours late as is the federal government.
Officials reminded drivers and pedestrians to use caution on roads, sidewalks and platforms at train stations because they may be slippery. Other tips included allowing extra time, slowing down while driving and working from home if possible.
The Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang predicts the rain should end in the afternoon but temperatures will remain cold. That could lead to potential troubles on area roadways for the evening and Tuesday morning commute.
