WASHINGTON — Snow teams in the Washington region are readying for winter weather.

The District of Columbia says it will deploy its snow team starting at 3 p.m. Monday. That means drivers will be readying their plows to pre-treat the roads. The city says more than 200 plows will be on their routes by 5 p.m.

Prince George's County says it will have approximately 250 vehicles monitoring and plowing the roadways this afternoon and evening.

Officials say the storm system bringing the snow should reach the region between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. and bring several inches of snow overnight Monday into Tuesday morning.

The heaviest snow is expected between 8 p.m. Monday and 6 a.m. Tuesday.
