The good news: It’s not snowing yet, and yesterday’s predictions of 1-5 inches in the city is now down to “less than a half inch” today and “around an inch” tonight, according to the National Weather Service
The bad news: Part of today’s precipitation could fall as rain, and it will freeze on contact with the pavement, creating sheets of ice that could completely ruin the evening commute.
Long Range: The cold will continue into next week, and we could have a whole other round of snow to look forward to on Sunday. Yay?
If that happens, be sure to refer back to our color-coded map that shows which local roads will be the first to become impassible. (you’ll want to stay away from the black diamond routes)
Metro buses are also way off schedule and could get less dependable if the weather worsens today. They’ve got a new page that will update you on any service changes. And don’t forget to check out the details of your route using Metro’s “progressive, web-based tools” and see if it has a special winter weather route that could switch things up on you.
