Snow plows in the District will hit the streets this morning ahead of expected snowfall. Crews will not start salting the roads until after snow begins to fall.

Bill Howland, the director of D.C. Department of Public Works, says with snowfall estimates varying for this storm, they have to be ready for anything.

The District has more than 300 pieces of snow removal equipment and 750 personnel available for any given storm. Because of the weather, leaf collection in the city has been suspended for the day, but is expected to resume Monday.
