Montgomery County pre-treats some roads for early morning winter weather (Video+Photos)

Montgomery County's Division of Highway Services has activated its Storm Operations Center. Crews were spotted in downtown Bethesda pre-treating County roads, but there is no indication that residential streets received the same treatment overnight.

Three waves of sleet have passed through Bethesda since 4:30 AM, along with the first snowfall of the season. More sleet and light snow are possible between now and 9:00 AM, with minimal accumulation - mainly a coating, especially on non-roadway surfaces. Precipitation is then expected to convert to rain showers, heavy at times as the day goes on. Flooding is possible.

Montgomery County Public Schools will open two hours late this morning.
