Salt trucks are being positioned along highways and near bridges and overpasses throughout the D.C. area this afternoon in anticipation of an approaching storm that could bring up to an inch of snow and freezing rain.

Forecasters with the National Weather Service said snow could fall over much of the Baltimore-Washington area this evening. They said temperatures in the low 30s could produce freezing rain overnight.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for the region from 6 p.m. today until 9 a.m. tomorrow.

Officials at the departments of transportation in Maryland, Virginia and the District have crews standing by to begin treating major commuter routes as soon as the snow arrives.

Some local school systems canceled afternoon and evening activities and some announced they would open late tomorrow.
