Once more, with feeling: Snow emergency in D.C.
The "snow emergency" declaration is back in the District.
After the latest snow emergency was lifted on Saturday, another will begin at 9 a.m. Monday in order to help crews to plow during an expected snowfall.
D.C. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty said in a news release Sunday night that the city's transportation and public-works departments will start pre-treating already cleared roads at 9 a.m. Crews will also put down salt and brine on major corridors, bridges, overpasses, ramps and hilly streets.
Under the emergency declaration, drivers who park along corridors posted with white and red "snow emergency route" signs can be fined and towed.
The National Weather Service is predicting that a wintry mix will start about midday. The Capital Weather Gang is calling for one to four inches of snow in the region, with the highest totals north and west of the District.
