Overnight/Morning Snowfall Could Create Problems for Morning Commute

January 16, 2018

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Germantown area beginning at 9:00 pm Tuesday, Jan. 16 until 9:00 am Wednesday morning. A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. “Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities and use caution while driving,” said the National Weather Service.

  “Snow expected. Plan on slippery road conditions, including during the Wednesday morning commute. Total snow accumulations of around an inch are expected,” said the National Weather Service. “Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times.”

   Earlier, the National Weather Service issued statement saying that there is a potential winter commuting hazard for the Baltimore/Washington Metro area for Wednesday morning. If this threat does materialize during the Wednesday morning rush-hour, many roads could quickly turn icy. This could lead to dangerous traveling conditions, multiple accidents, and extensive delays. If commuting Wednesday morning, be aware of the POSSIBILITY of significant travel disruptions. Plan ahead by allowing for extra travel time, and consider using public transportation and telework options.”

   The area is bracing a snow storm of the winter which will bring another wintery mix Germantown area and all of Montgomery County and the District of Columbia and north central and northern Maryland and northern Virginia.

   On Monday night, MoCoSnow, the Germantown Pulse’s weather partner, said, “Right now, it doesn't look like we're going to get much help from anything off the coast, so the clipper is what's bringing the moisture. Because of that, it looks less likely that we are going to have a bigger event.”

   MoCoSnow’s full post on this evening’s storm and a prediction as to if a delay or full closure of school might be in play are available at MoCoSnow.com.
