WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington's mayor is urging people to stay off the roads as snow comes down.
By midmorning in Washington, the snow was still mixed with rain and roads were passable, with only occasional slushy spots. But Mayor Vincent Gray warned that conditions were expected to deteriorate quickly in the afternoon.
He says the best thing people in the city can do is stay off the streets.
At the District of Columbia's salt dome, trucks were being loaded with a salt-and-sand mixture. The district has more than 450 pieces of snow equipment deployed to treat the roads.
