‘Yellow vest’ protesters vandalize more than half of France’s speed cameras, official says

French officials said members of the “yellow vest” protest movement vandalized or destroyed more than half of the country’s speed camera network, which were seen by some as a cynical revenue-generating measure aimed at the middle and lower classes.

WASHINGTON — As snow falls upon the D.C. area for the first time this year, the entire region is now covered by a winter storm warning through 6 p.m. on Sunday. Heavy snow is expected to fall throughout the weekend and anywhere between 6 to 10 inches can be expected at the end of it all.

In advance of the possibility of downed trees, power outages and transportation impacts that the mix of snow, ice and high winds may bring throughout Virginia, Gov. Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency Saturday night. The state of emergency allows for resources, such as state police, the department of transportation and the National Guard to mobilize in response to any recovery efforts.

“Virginians should take precautions to stay safe as we begin experiencing winter weather effects,” Northam said in a news release.



The snow and temperatures dropping into the low 20s will make travel very dangerous as roads become slippery and covered with snow.

The heart of the storm arrived overnight through Sunday morning.

There could be a morning flurry on Monday before weather warms up a bit on Tuesday.

Totals will vary depending on location, and areas from D.C. south into Virginia are the most likely to see higher amounts.The immediate D.C. metro area may see anywhere from 6 to 10 inches and areas south of that may even see up to a foot of snow.

As of 11 p.m., here are snow accumulation in the following areas:

  • Winchester, Virginia – 4 inches
  • Ashburn, Virginia; Adamstown, Maryland – 2.8 inches
  • Chantilly, Virginia; Bailey’s Crossroads, Virginia  – 2.5 inches
  • Vienna, Virginia – 2.3 inches
  • Purcellville, Virginia; Wolf Trap in Virginia – 2.1 inches
  • Montclair, Virginia; Alexandria, Virginia; Annandale, Virginia; Langley, Virginia – 2 inches
  • Norbeck, Maryland; Fairfax Station, Virginia; Glendie, Virginia – 1.8 inches
  • Arcola, Virginia; Waldorf, Maryland – 1.7 inches
  • Callaway, Maryland – 1.6 inches
  • Hollywood, Maryland; Bloomfield, Maryland – 1.5 inches
  • Leesburg, Virginia – 1.4 inches
  • La Plata, Maryland – 1.3 inches
  • Dale City, Virginia; Columbia, Maryland – 1.2 inches
  • Clarksburg, Churchton, Westminster, Lusby  in Maryland – 1 inch

Several school systems in the area have canceled Saturday activities. For a complete list of closures, visit WTOP’s Closings and Delays page.

Watches and warnings:

The following counties in the WTOP listening areas are under a Winter Storm Warning:

D.C.

In Maryland: Southern Montgomery, Calvert, Charles, Prince George’s and St. Mary’s counties until 6 p.m. Sunday. In Anne Arundel and southern Baltimore County, the warning begins at 7 p.m. Saturday and lasts through 6 p.m. Sunday.

In Virginia: Arlington, Alexandria City, Fairfax, Loudoun, Fauquier, Falls Church City, Manassas City, Manassas Park City, Prince William and Stafford counties until 6 p.m. Sunday.

A Winter Storm Warning means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.


The updated warning issued at 1 p.m. on Saturday included the majority of the WTOP listening area, and also included Anne Arundel and the southern part of Baltimore County. Those areas should expect 4 to 8 inches of snow by the time the storm moves out.

A swath of moisture will be picked up from the Gulf of Mexico by the storm, transporting it toward the area and interacting with cold, initially dry air already in place. The storm’s center will head through the Southeast states, eventually moving to the coast of the Carolinas and strengthening as it heads out to sea.

It does not look like it is going to be a classic Nor’easter heading up the eastern seaboard. This will put the area on the northern fringe of the precipitation shield, where it will stay cold enough for all snow. The ground will be cold enough for most of the snow that falls to stick, though likely not right away.

Again, areas south of Interstate 66, especially closer to I-64, should be aware of the potential for a little more than that range. Considering how much of the storm will be occurring at night, the fact that it’s occurring during the weekend and that accumulations will be drawn out over a period of time, this would qualify as a low-to-moderate-impact storm.


Traffic and road conditions:

In Maryland, the State Highway Administration pre-treated roads and got equipment ready. They said in a statement Friday that they plan to have bringing completed by Saturday and staging trucks and plows beginning Saturday night.

Maryland State Highway Administration spokesman Charlie Gischlar cautioned drivers to give snow plow operators the space they need to do their jobs clearing the road.

“Don’t crowd the plow,” Gischlar said. He said that a car crashed into one of the 40-ton trucks on I-270 by Democracy Boulevard on Saturday night. He recommended staying at least 50 feet behind snow plows.

He said that people need to slow down when driving in these conditions, and he has seen drivers driving too fast for these slippery conditions.

In Prince George’s County, 40 brand new snowplows were ready to be deployed to cover the 2000 miles of county road, according to county executive Angela Alsobrooks.

“There are 25,000 tons of salt behind me,” she said, early Saturday afternoon. “We have new vehicles this year that we are introducing out onto the roads. So we’re ready, but we want the residents to be very careful. Let me handle the snow. Stay home, watch a movie, sit in front of the fireplace and let us handle the snow.”

You can track the Maryland snow preparations on the Statewide Transportation Operations Resources Map (STORM) app.


For the latest traffic, visit the WTOP Traffic center.


The highway agency said that if more than 6 inches of snowfall, they’ll make certain park-and-rides available for truckers to ride it out. They have a list of locations online.

The Virginia Department of Transportation has been pre-treating roads since Thursday, especially in the Fredericksburg area.

Drivers should be careful and increase their following distance due to slippery roads, NBC Washington meteorologist Steve Prinzivalli said.

Alsobrooks emphasized that her county’s first priority is to treat and clear the primary roads. She asked residents to “please give us 24 hours to reach residential areas before you start calling about them.”


Forecast:

Snow, moderate to heavy at times. Additional accumulations of 4 to 8 inches on top of what has already fallen. Total accumulations of 6 to 10 inches in the D.C. metropolitan area. Close to a foot in central Virginia. Expect lighter amounts north of D.C. toward Baltimore, where two to four inches are possible.

Sunday: Light to moderate snow in the morning, with 4 to 8 inches of accumulation. Slightly higher amounts in central Virginia are possible with more snow Sunday afternoon and evening in central Virginia.

Monday: Morning flurries possible. Some sun in the afternoon. Highs in the low to mid-30s.

Tuesday: Partly sunny and chilly. Highs near 40 degrees.
