The ice is starting to melt, and Metro says buses have resumed normal service today.
Though the transit agency previously estimated some of its lines would run on detours this morning, Metro reported that all buses were running normally as of 7:20 a.m. today.
Metro previously enacted its “severe snow plan” due to yesterday’s winter weather, and the agency suspended service at 10 p.m. last night.
Although patches of ice remain scattered across the area, the Capital Weather Gang says warmer temperatures and possibly heavy rainfall will thaw roads throughout the morning and afternoon.
But all that extra moisture could be too much of a good thing, according to the National Weather Service. The area is under a flood watch until 11 p.m.
