ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Tuesday, crews prepared for another wintery mix with talks of snow on the way.

The DMV could see up to two inches of snow according to the National Weather Service, set to start around 1:00 Wednesday morning.

Snow crews in DC and Virginia hit the roads early to get ahead of the snowfall.
Over 200 trucks went out around 7:00 Tuesday evening in DC to treat highways, primary roads, and residential areas.
VDOT was also gearing up.

“We have crews that as you can see are mobilizing now, they’re getting their assignments and their salt and sand, depending on where they’re going, and we’re going to stage crews alongside the road until the snow starts.”, said a VDOT Spokesperson.

In DC, DDOT is urging people to consider taking the metro to avoid driving on the roads.

You might also consider putting some rock salt or some kind of deicer to avoid slipping outside on the sidewalk.

So far, Prince William County Schools are on a two hour delay.
