Snow and Sleet Makes January 26 DC Metro Commute More Dangerous

Snow and sleet coated parts of DC to the north, and parts of DC to the south saw sleet. Nonetheless, many roads and sidewalks were already slick, as the storm began during the evening when the temperatures were already dropping.

DC will not get the amount of accumulation forecasted previously, but the freezing rain is possible overnight, which can worsen conditions north and west of DC. Of course, DC will treat the roads with salt to get the roads to be as safe as possible, but until this happens, it will take more risk and time to get to where one needs to go tomorrow.

Overnight, temperatures will range between 28 to 32 degrees. The federal government’s Office of Personnel Management will keep the government open but is allowing unscheduled leave for anyone needing to work in the city.
